This collection contains the entire series of Dear John, featuring all the episodes from Series One and Two plus the Christmas Special. John Lacey arrives home to find a letter from his wife informing him she has left him for his best friend. After spotting an advert in the local paper for the ‘1-2-1 Club’, an encounter group for the divorced and separated, he decides to go along. Here he meets the feisty Kate, the bland, bespectacled Ralph, the exuberant Kirk St. Moritz, resplendent in white suit and medallion, and of course club founder Louise, who asks everyone with relish "Were there any sexual problems?"

What a blast from the past, but the jokes are just timeless. A very funny series, one that will be watched over and over. My two teenage sons love it too, another testiment it has stood the test of time. If you need more convincing, the writer also wrote the classic sitcom "Only Fools and Horses", what more convincing do you need???
Well the long wait is finally over - this classic sitcom from the 80s is finally released - and any fans from its original showing on BBC won't need convincing to snap it up! Those not fortunate enough to have seen "Dear John" first time round are in for a real treat. As a previous reviewer has said, the subject matter seems unpromising ground for a sitcom, but the adventures of hapless John Lacey (superbly played by Ralph Bates) after his wife leaves him are a delight! John decides to put his life back on track by attending the 1-2-1 Club for divorced and separated people. This is run by Louise whose catchphrase "were there any ... sexual problems?" is the stuff of sitcom legends! Other members include Kate (Belinda Lang) an attractive but somewhat insecure divorcee, Ralph, played by Peter Denyer, whose Polish wife has married him to stay in the country and has since disappeared, Mrs. Arnott (Jean Challis) a somewhat frumpy older lady who says nothing until an unexpected revelation at the end of the first episode, and the unforgettable Kirk St. Moritz, brilliantly portrayed by Peter Blake, a medallion-wearing, leather-trousered lothario who appears to be super confident and succeeds only in insulting just about everyone! This is a briiliantly written series which would certainly have reached a wider audience and fanbase had it been repeated as is the BBC's usual wont with sitcoms, but with the release of the DVD it's time to redress the balance! In my opinion one of the best-ever comedies - treat yourself - you'll be hooked in no time!
