Synopsis:
Lost Sitcoms revisits missing episodes of three classic comedies - Hancock's Half Hour ('The New Neighbour'), Steptoe and Son ('A Winter's Tale') and Till Death Us Do Part ('A Woman's Place is in the Home'). The scripts for these shows still exist but the original recordings are missing from the archives. BBC Comedy remade the shows on a stylised set, aiming to capture the spirit of the originals whilst bringing a new look and feel to the shows.

New versions - Lost Sitcoms review by AW

Spoiler Alert
20/07/2019

I didn't read the blurb and just assumed it was real episodes of old sitcoms that have been resurrected but this is actually some original scripts that were not performed at the time with the original casts. In this case, this disc, 3 episodes (Hancock's Half Hour, Steptoe and Son, Til Death Do Us Part) done by modern actors. Tony Hancock played by Kevin McNally is pretty close, both in looks and voice, old Steptoe sounds remarkably like Wilfred Brimble played by an almost unrecognisable Jeff Rawle, and Simon Day is Alf Garnett.

Robin Sebastian is a hoot as the Kenneth Williams character and John Culshaw does a creditable Sid James turn. Played in a theatre like setting with spare metal staging, all a bit odd to look at but look beyond it. The content is interesting all the same.
