A Bit Of A Do - Complete Mini Series DVD
Wedding's can be a fraught affair at the best of times, but when Ted Simcock (David Jason) - the father of the groom, and the bride's mother, Liz Rodenhurst (Nicola Pagett - Upstairs Downstairs) make it a day to remember for all the wrong reasons, it sparks a chain of events that changes the lives of the snobbish Rodenhursts and working-class Simcocks forever. Adapted for the screen from his own novels by David Nobbs (The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin), A Bit of a Do is a sharply-written comedy drama which won David Jason the Best Actor Award at the 1990 British Comedy Awards. Featuring an outstanding supporting cast that includes Paul Chapman (As Time Goes By) as snooty dentist and father of the bride Laurence Rodenhurst, Gwen Taylor (Duty Free) as scorned wife Rita Simcock and Stephaine Cole (Waiting for God) and Tim Wylton (My Hero) as family friends Betty and Rodney Sillitoe, A Bit of a Do sees the changing lives and fortunes of the group through various social occasions, including five weddings, a christening and a funeral.
