  2. DoubleAct1972 says:

    Hopefully putting together a touring stage version of Rising Damp, in conjunction with Eric Chappel, the scripts are amazing

    @SteeveeStrange Yeh you can often tell when the laughter is real or fake by the actors reactions. If they’re not even looking interrupted by the laughter and waiting to talk before the next punch line then you know it’s not live or it has been edited.

  4. SteeveeStrange says:

    Has anyone noticed that commercial channels are ruining the laughter in this comedy by editing out prolonged laughter so they can fit in more advertising time?

    This looks like an original clip before the advertisers chopped it up!

    Rising Damp
    Steptoe and Son
    Only fools and Horses
    but Rigsby’s the best character out of all of them

  20. FulchesterUnited says:

    @ThunderboltzBS The writing in these old shows is just miles above most of what is out there today, with a very few exceptions. Beckinsale was a tragic loss to British TV…

  21. ITCHYthirdEYE says:

    Absolute classic!

  22. misslindajenkins7317 says:

    wot a classic!!!

  23. PM1970 says:

    £4 rent? How things have moved on lol!

  24. cricketbat08 says:

    The four main characters in this classic series worked so well together. Rigsby, Miss Jones, Philip and Alan were amazing!!

  25. Broadsword255 says:

    @ThunderboltzBS you have good taste dude!. Such a tragedy that Richard Beckinsale passed away so young though
