Agree totally. And the police crack me up too. 'Crime won't crack itself...'
Personal issues and they couldn't (for a long while) get everyone together as a lot of the cast were busy on a lot of other projects. Shame, but will have to be remembered as a short lived cult classic.Old Tommy died last week. Shame they didnt do another series.
Beautifully written and acted, just a perfect comedy. I'd also highly recommend, by the same writers, the mini-series Sunshine, starring Steve Coogan and the writers, plus Bernard Hill and a few other cast members from Early Doors. Not sure if it's streamed anywhere but it's absolutely brilliant, and will make you laugh and cry.
The eggs chopped up in a cup remedy for Ken's flu is hilarious...
Eddie: "You eat it Ken"
Ken: "Oh do ya? I was gonna rub it on me chest!"
Eddie: "I told you it was an easy mistake to make Joan!"
