Oh No It's Selwyn Froggit - The Complete Series (DVD)
The 1970s Yorkshire TV sitcom starring Bill Maynard as council labourer Selwyn Froggitt, the would-be Mr Fix-It and all-round public nuisance whose efforts always end in disaster.
Selwyn Froggitt is the kind of man everybody comes across at least once. He’s the kind of man who thinks he can fix anything; the kind of man who you run for cover from! Selwyn's favourite phrase is 'Leave it to me.' Whatever the problem, he knows what to do and how to handle it. The trouble is that despite boundless confidence in his own abilities, Selwyn really knows very little, and can handle even less. But that doesn't stop him... The series established Bill Maynard as a household name. This box set contains the complete series.
'Hey, it's brilliant this, isn't it? I'm on a DVD! That's me on the front cover! And there's our mam up there... and Ray from the club: I'll have a pint o'cookin' and a bag of nuts, our Raymond! Oh, he can't hear me. There's our Maurice an' all - hey our Maurice, where's Vera? And there's Jack on the end, he doesn t look too happy does he? He's on the committee, like I am. Anyway, I'll have to go now, I've got the Times Literary Supplement to read... it's great, you get three and a book on Sundays! Magic!''
