Don't Drink the Water: The Complete Series
"It’s going to be another stinking hot day today..."
This hilarious sequel to the phenomenally successful On the Buses follows the further misfortunes of the newly retired Inspector Blake (Stephen Lewis), erstwhile scourge of the Luxton Bus Company Depot.
Dreaming of peace and quiet, sun and senoritas, he’s decided to warm up the autumn of his days in a little flat in Spain that the glossy brochures have lured him into buying with his life's savings - so beginning a whole new series of mishaps that could happen only to Blakey. The water's undrinkable, the food's 'orrible, the plumbing’s dodgy... and the place is full of foreigners!
Also starring Pat Coombs (as Blakey's long-suffering sister Dorothy) and Derek Griffiths, Don't Drink the Water was created by Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney - the writing team behind On the Buses, whose comedy credits also include Educating Archie, Meet the Wife and The Rag Trade. This set contains both series, originally screened in 1974 and 1975.
