I remember watching this as a sprog & enjoying it at the time but haven't seen it in years (sure some other members can point out that it's probably repeated over & over on one of the satelite channels). BBC haven't stood by the series in terms of repeats due to comments & complaints about the racial nature of some of the comedy (Michael Bates was 'blacked up' to play an Indian character) & Windsor Davies constantly screaming about 'pooftas'.
Not having seen it in ages I don't know how well it's stood the test of time but it seems a damn good price for 4 series worth!

Trivia -
Some viewers considered that there was a racial element to the humour, with critics singling out Michael Bates in the black-face make-up as the most obvious example. Detractors claimed that, at the very least, a real Indian actor could have been cast in the part rather than a white-skinned man. Bates had a tongue-in-cheek response: he pointed out that he was born in Janshi, India, spoke Hindustani before he learned English, and, as the two genuinely brown faces in the cast actually belonged to a Pakistani and a Bangladeshi, he was in fact the only real Indian in the production!
