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

The problem with Blah is their delivery time is pathetic..... Worth paying an extra quid or so to have it delivered in a couple of days.

i remember reading that they didnt actually like each other off set. a classic series but i am not sure how funnny they would be now.
they had this same set for £30 in my hmv the other day so although slightly more expensive if it is nationwide it means you get it right away. still voted this hot though for the price.

Great price. I paid a fortune buying the series individually so I feel a bit cheated over this and the other BBC sets too.:x

It's still very good and holds up today while the later episodes, made in colour, easily outshine any sit-com the BBC makes right now.

Like The Office, Steptoe was turned into a US show called Sanford and Son, which changed the characters into black scrapyard men. White losers wouldn't have been acceptable apparently.:?

The BBC seem to have given up on making classic sit-coms, with the noticeable exception of The Office, and now seems to spend more time money and effort on disposable shows like Strictly Come Dancing.

At least the Americans are still trying.

Heat and rep.

Zavvi was pushing this out for £24.99 less 25% three weeks ago (£18.74), but of course impossible to say whether local stores had it. I got lucky and grabbed the last box - and was very pleased - even at £28.67 this is still a good deal
