This collection contains the entire series of Dear John, featuring all the episodes from Series One and Two plus the Christmas Special. John Lacey arrives home to find a letter from his wife informing him she has left him for his best friend. After spotting an advert in the local paper for the '1-2-1 Club', an encounter group for the divorced and separated, he decides to go along. 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?"

 At long last - a classic revisited

| | See all SouthCoastMackem's reviews (1)

Finally released by the BBC after promising it for years, this is an unalloyed classic. From the pen of John Sullivan, this follows the fortunes of the newly-divorced John Lacey (the late Ralph Bates) and his oddball friends at the 1-2-1 Club encounter group.

Sharply defined characters abound - the feisty Kate (Belinda Lang), group faciliatator and frustrated divorcee Louise (Rachel Bell), Ralph Dring aka Dazzling Darren the DJ (Peter Denyer, formerly Dennis in 'Please Sir!') and one of the great comic creations, fantasist Kirk St Moritz (Peter Blake).

As with most of Sullivan's work, snappy one-liners are as prevalent as carpets of Autumn leaves, but there are also some great visual gags too (John putting on a pair of hot newly ironed trousers to answer the door and then having to squirt his crotch with water, for example). My favourite visual gag is a backdrop shot of Kirk stutting his stuff at a party, flinging the hostess around like a rag doll and, when she disappears from view having been yanked away, hearing a crash of breaking glass.

Like "Fawlty Towers". only a few episodes of this were made, but
each is a gem in its own right. Enthusiasts of great comedy should snap this up while they can - they won't regret it! The final episode (the Christmas Special) is both very funny and very moving - the mark of a great writer and a fine cast. Watching this was like meeting up with old friends after a long separation - and I can't wait to meet them again and again.

dear john is a great comedy programme with good strong characters and laugh a second one liners .
if you know the show then you will know this line , "any , sexual problems " .
and the episode where ralph is the dj and is constantly playing shakin stevens green door over and over much to the headache of the other members of the group is so so funny .
i can see him now standing behind the table looking totally uncomfortable and introducing the next song .
i have just ordered the whole two series a few mins ago and i'm looking forward to watching them in a week or so when they arrive .
if you have never seen this show and there is most likely lots that have not then i suggest to you buy it .
you will love it .
