An absolute treasure trove for fans of classic British comedy, Steptoe and Son: Complete BBC Series Box Set unites every single episode from series one to eight of the show, along with a pair of Christmas specials too. That amounts to over 50 episodes of pure comedy gold, just waiting to be rediscovered.
The situation of the sit-com is, of course, a father and son running their scrap metal business. But the com comes in droves, starting from the wonderful pairing of Wilfred Brambell and Harry H Corbett in the leading roles. Its hard to think of a finer piece of comedy pairing in a British television programme of this ilk, and their relationship is very much the core of what makes Steptoe and Son great.

Credit, however, must also going to comedy writing legends Galton and Simpson. The genius of their scripts was they needed no gimmicks, and no tricks. Instead, good, honest, well-written dialogue that had no problem with pushing the boundaries of the time generated the laughs, and Steptoe and Son has them in abundance.

Is Steptoe and Son the best sit-com in British television history? Well, thats open to debate. But what isnt up for argument is that its certainly one of the very best, and thanks to this comprehensive boxset, its one that continues to live on and find its audience. Unmissable. --Simon Brew

This is a brilliant boxset of one of the best comedies. Amazingly all the episodes exist, which is unusual for the time. Its taken me 2 years to get through and I'm ready to start over again.
