    I beg to disagree: Naked Video was very funny. Siadwell the Welsh loser and his pet wasp and his Llanelli terrier was very funny as he looked like the kind of boyo the local rugby team used as the ball. Also it gave birth to Rab C Nesbitt so had something going for it.

    Looking back at it now, the only funny bits are Siadwell’s monologues, and nothing else

    The end credits for the latter series replaced the roaring Thatcher with John Major as a buck toothed mouse, I recall…

    Didn’t think much of Helen Lederer’s monologues, but the rest was very funny.
