I haven't seen this series since 1977 and it's as fabulous as I remember. I'm a great fan of the original 1940s novel on which it is based, and the casting here is PERFECT! It's hard to single out performers for individual praise, the standard is so high, but do watch out for Patricia Hayes as Connie Coke, John Sharp as Mr Puddy, Terence Budd as Percy Boon, Madge Ryan as Mrs Vizzard, and Peter Jeffrey as Mr Squales. Superb viewing. I'm so glad to have this DVD set.
