From Richard Spendlove, and David Croft, writer of Dad's Army and Hi-de-Hi!, Oh Doctor Beeching! has been a firm favourite with millions of British comedy fans.

Arriving in 1963, please alight at the small branch railway station of Hatley, threatened with closure under the Beeching Axe. Paul Shane stars as porter Jack Skinner, married to the café-managing May (Julia Deakin), who was once in a close relationship with new station master Cecil Parkin (Jeffrey Holland).

Also on the platform of this quaint and quirky railway station are May's daughter Gloria (Lindsay Grimshaw), booking clerk Ethel Schumann (Su Pollard) and signalman and jack-of-all-trades (all of them off the books) Harry Lambert (Stephen Lewis).

Over 19 fun-filled episodes, Oh Doctor Beeching! celebrates everything that was great about Britain and the British Railway, back when the greatest challenge in rail travel was getting a decent cup of tea.

to have some of the You Rang M`Lord cast reappear in another fabulous comedy. Great entertainment. Just wish it has gone on for more series. Su Pollard in particular is brilliant. My one gripe is that the BBC didn`t include the pilot of the series on here, but hey you can`t have everything.

A nice boxed set telling the story about a small railway station "Hatley" and the railway employees working there. Being such a small and obscure part of the british rail system, Hatley is in danger of being closed for business. The few, and very funny, people working alongside this part of the railwayline - wont stand for losing their jobs and livelyhood this way.

Hilarity nonstop through 19 episodes. I just wish there were more of them. Brilliant comedy!!

 So thrilled to have this box set!!

Years ago, I used to watch You Rang m'Lord with such pleasure and then we were all so lucky to get a new series Oh Doctor Beeching! with the same fantastic cast, especially Su Pollard. She is brilliant!! I am so thrilled to own both these box sets and can enjoy them over and over again!!! I highly recommend them to anyone who appreciates comedy at its best. You are in for a good laugh!!!
