Written by and starring the very funny Sean Lock.

Two very different blokes. One small flat. One huge apartment block. It's bound to go wrong, isn't it? Especially when one is morose, sullen and mean-spirited and the other is a bright-eyed innocent with a lot to learn about life. Far from expressing the depressing and futile existence commonly associated with high-rises, 15 Storeys High reveals the many idiosyncrasies and hilarious antics of the diverse residents. There's the man who uses his pitbull as a dumbell, the table-tennis obsessed brothers, the over-the-hill punks and the country and western poet who also fixes washing machines. And of course there's South London's very own answer to the Odd couple, Vince and Errol: a match truly made in heaven.

One of the BBC's cult TV comedies, this sharp and quirky series is written by and stars British Comedy Award winner Sean Lock. He's locked in a high-rise flatshare with another bloke on a South London council estate. But he's the landlord and his lodger Errol (Wong) is making his life a misery. What's more there are other hilarious oddball occupants in the block to contend with, from the wife-swappers and bible-bashers to the guy with a lodger of his own, a horse! Contains all six episodes from Series 1: ‘The Sofa’, ‘Pool Kids’, ‘Blue Rat’, The Model’, ‘Ice Queen’ and ‘Dead Swan’.


This is probably the most under-rated comedy of recent times. I think it likely had something to do with the BBC putting it out around midnight midweek. Few people ended up watching it and it didn't make much of a dent in the ratings. I watched it and I thought it was fantastic. Eight quid for the whole lot is an absolute steal.

I agree with Northers, put on at a better time more people would have enjoyed this Hit and Miss series, more Hit than miss though, excellent spot and I have bought it, Yes!,
