Win a Bundle of 3 British Comedies

British Comedies

Three British comedies, Tandoori Nights: series 1 and 2, Meet the Wife: series 1-5 and Sleepers: all series; come to DVD courtesy of Simply Media on 24 October 2016.  

First broadcast in 1985, and on DVD for the first time 24 October 2016, Tandoori Nights is a spicy, ground-breaking Channel 4 comedy about an embattled curry house owner (Saeed Jaffrey - My Beautiful Laundrette, Gandhi) and his wayward family. Created by prolific writer Farrukh Dhondy, the series takes a wry look at provocative issues around sexual and racial equality, including mixed-race relationships, politicised Asian women and grasping business methods.

One of the BBC’s earliest domestic sitcoms, Meet the Wife affectionately dissects the trials and comforts of mid-life marriage after the kids have flown the nest. Written by Ronald Chesney and Ronald Wolfe (On the Buses), and running for five series from 1963 to 1966, the series was immortalised in The Beatles’ ‘Good Morning, Good Morning’: “It’s time for tea and Meet the Wife”. BAFTA-winning Dame Thora Hird DBE (Last of the Summer Wine) and Freddie Frinton (Dinner for One) are Thora and Fred Blacklock, a middle-aged couple in the north of England, just about managing to make ends meet.

Sleepers: Amidst the thaw of glasnost, the Kremlin discovers that two Soviet agents, sent to England under deep cover in 1965, have been ‘lost.’ Sultry, unrelenting KGB high-up Nina Grishina (Joanna Kanska – The Tall Guy) flies into London to lead the search and soon becomes embroiled in a tangle of CIA, KGB and MI-5 plots and counter-plots as the two lost agents, now utterly assimilated, try to avoid detection. A cat-and-mouse chase follows, delivering a hilarious cross-cultural comedy thriller directed by BAFTA winner Geoffrey Sax (Doctor Who).
