Nicholas Lyndhurst stars as accidental time traveller Gary Sparrow in the classic BBC sitcom Goodnight Sweetheart. The show, written by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, became an instant hit when it was broadcast twenty years ago and with its brilliant mix of comedy and drama, has gone on to become a firm favourite with fans all over the world.
Meet Mr Gary Sparrow, just an ordinary bloke with an extraordinary life; almost a devoted and attentive husband and a sometimes loyal and dependable best friend. By day, a very bored and uninspired TV repairman but by night, an accidental time traveller extraordinaire.
Among the anonymous streets of Whitechapel you will find a strange alley called Duckett's Passage. It looks like any other alleyway, but for Gary Sparrow it leads to a war torn London, to barrage balloons and the Blitz, and in particular, to a little pub called The Royal Oak, to a lonely barmaid called Phoebe...

Goodnight Sweetheart has an inspired premise and benefits from having Nicholas Lyndhurst in the main role. The series does not always make the most of the setting though. At times it spends too much time making jokes about Gary having written famous songs and too little time focusing on the war. It is still a fine series though and has many writer commentaries on the episodes.
I LOVE THIS PROGRAMME!!! SUCH A LOVELY NOSTALGIC VIEWING,I PREFER THE ORIGINAL YVONNE,BUT AS A 40'S FAN I CAN WATCH THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY.
Comedy classic. Box is stern and value for number of episodes is great. This is obviously shot in 640x480 standard def so Blu-ray will not be any better (if one is ever made) so this is great value for money. I bought two. One as a gift and one for me!
Excellent collection of Goodnight Sweetheart. Superb price for the full series of this classic. Highly recommended.
Goodnight Sweetheart arrived today and I can't stop watching! This series is very funny and so enjoyable. Really pleased. Will be looking at other titles considering this was such good value!
I loved this series when I was younger, but had been put off by high complete season prices. However, when I saw this at sale price I was very pleasantly surprised, not only that i dicovered it was a limited edition version, although i have not yet found out the reason for this - I am sure i will as i make my way through the DVDs. Also, very quick and efficient delivery, so all in all I am a happy customer.
Brilliant! I wasn't sure if I was going to like this DVD (because I never saw it on TV) but it is good entertaining comedy, easy to watch, and I have looked forward to each episode. Pity about the change of the two lead females half way through.
This is a very good boxset well worth the money.
excellent dvds,delivered very quickly at a great price. many thanks the hut
Brilliant!! been looking for this for ages at the right price...
I watched a few of these when the series first came out. I have quite decided that Ron, with the sharp tongue, redeems every episode as hapless Garry stumbles into more trouble as he crosses the space / time continuum. I really like the strorylines, but finding the change of actresses hard to get used to at the moment.
One of the most original ideals for a time traveling serie and excellent story line, making each plot fresher and more believable.
This series is possibly the most underated series of the 90s, following a character called gary leads a typical life until he finds he can travel in time back to the 1940s. He then whilst married falls in love with a young barmaid and decides to travel back and forth in time to try and please both women aswell as carrying a huge amount of guilt in both eras. During the series there are a large amount of memorable characters who will by the end have made you laugh cry and feel how they feel. The series will keep you watching as theres never really a clue of whats round the next corner and the scenery is well portrayed. The actors are also excellent and overall its an absolutely flawless series and as with some series its just a shame it had to end.
I bought this the other week as it is probably the cheapest about on the net, this is an excellent box set and this is one of the funniest and best series about would recommend to anyone at this price its a bargain.
