Britain's favourite entertainment writer celebrates Britain's best-loved sitcom.
Graham McCann is the most trusted and admired entertainment writer working in the UK today. He is the critically acclaimed and best-selling author of books on Dad's Army, Fawlty Towers, Frankie Howerd, Cary Grant, Spike Milligan, Terry-Thomas, Woody Allen, John Le Mesurier, Morecambe and Wise, and Marilyn Monroe. He also writes regularly on politics and culture for a wide range of publications.
* This is a thoroughly-researched, breezily-written, affectionate and yet never dewy-eyed account of how a great TV series was put together. It stands as a worthy monument to its creator Daily Mail * McCann provides hundreds of interesting details ... on how the show crept into the British consciousness and captured the British public's imagination with its characters and humour ... The back stories of the actors and actresses are engrossing and how the theme music came about is a comic tale in itself Telegraph * What is not to love about this book? It is meticulous, exact, intelligent, affectionate and somehow inspirational. McCann, who has written on Cary Grant and Morecombe & Wise, has delivered his best one yet. Guardian on Dad's Army * McCann's impeccably detailed biography is both a celebration and a lament. The Times on Morecambe and Wise * Never has the sheer awkwardness of the human condition been so comically or beautifully conveyed. Daily Mail on Frankie Howerd * You will laugh, you will learn and you will undoubtedly, start speaking in a silly voice. Word Magazine on Spike & Co * This book also makes one look anew at one's favourite scenes ... McCann has some nice insights into the production techniques that made this the most frenetic farce to have appeared on television. Telegraph on Fawlty Towers
