PR: Sink or Swim: The Complete Series [Network]

Post by Mr_Wolf »


Doctor Who star Peter Davison headlines this well-remembered BBC sitcom, starring alongside BAFTA-winning Hustle stalwart Robert Glenister in his TV debut.

They play brothers Brian and Steve Webber, whose attempt to strike out in business involves a soggy narrowboat and a dubious decision to ply the Thameside tourist trade. Unfortunately, Steve is as loutish and lazy as Brian is charming and ambitious – and the latter finds both his enthusiasm and his relationship with idealistic girlfriend Sonia severely hampered by his brother's persistent presence!

Scripted by Alex Shearer, creator of The Two of Us, Sink or Swim is a much-sought-after comedy. This set contains all three series. ... 60440.html

Taped some at the time, it was a great series, genuinely funny.

Good cast, and Nicholas Courtney appears in one episode ( it was due to the success of this series, that "Who" couldn't have an autumn start).
