The entire first series of the classic BBC comedy Dear John, where upon finding his wife has left him for his best friend, John joins the 1-2-1 Club, a local encounter group for the divorced and separated.

Here he meets the feisty Kate, the bland, bespectacled Ralph, the exuberant Kirk St. Moritz, resplendent in white suit and medallion, and of course club founder Louise, who asks everyone with relish "Were there any sexual problems?"

 Were there any sexual problems?

At last!!! After years of waiting and false release dates the stage is set for this fantastic comedy, never repeated by the BBC, to be given it's rightful place in the pantheons of television greatness.

The characters are superb, from Ralph and his motorcycle combination to Mrs Lemenski the nosey tenant.

What else do you expect from John Sullivan but wonderful scripts, and Ralph Bates plays the part of John Lacey amazingly.

Fingers crossed series 2 and the Christmas special are released quickly.

 Best comedy ever!

I absolutely agree with the two previous reviews. Dear John is one of the best comedies ever and my family and myself have waited ages for it to come out having been disappointed when the first release date was cancelled a few years ago. I can't wait for it to arrive!

 At long last!

after waiting for this show to appear on dvd for ages i was so pleased to receive series 1 through the post.In my opinion this is much funnier than Only Fools And Horses.All the actors have been well cast.I've just watched the first 2 episodes and have had to refrain from viewing all episodes in one sitting. I have to ration myself to a couple of episodes a night and hope that series 2 and the xmas specials are released in the next few weeks.Definitely one of the best British comedy shows ever!

 Dear John series 1: at last!

This show is, in my humble opinion, the best comedy series the BBC has ever produced. John Sullivan's scripts sparkle with wit, belly-laughs and pathos and the casting of the characters is perfect. Let's hope this release is swiftly followed by the second series and special (before the cheese plants start gossiping!)
