Just William: The Complete Series
Scruffy, crafty, but utterly likeable – that’s William, Richmal Crompton’s famous fictional schoolboy whose adventures have delighted generations. Made between 1977 and 1978, this definitive production of the stories, set in the 1920s, feature Adrian Dannatt as William, along with his gang, the Outlaws – Ginger, Henry and Douglas. Bane of parents everywhere, only one thing was guaranteed to turn him in his tracks: Violet Elizabeth Bott (Bonnie Langford), whose masterplan, should William not give in to her demands, was to “…thcweam and thcweam until I’m thick…”
A thundering success with children and parents alike, Just William featured a high calibre of guest stars, including Diana Dors, Geoffrey Bayldon, Freddie Jones, Julian Fellowes and Nigel Hawthorne. This complete set includes both classic series, originally screened in 1977 and 1978, along with the Christmas Special from 1977.
