Manny Cohen and Patrick Kelly are unlikely partners in a back-street tailoring business in Whitechapel, in London's East End. Coat-maker Manny is Jewish, while Patrick - who takes care of the trousers - is an Irish Catholic still yearning for his homeland. The two try hard to put their religious and cultural differences aside in the interests of making a living but mutual misunderstanding all too easily gets the better of them. That's why Father Ryan and Rabbi Levy are usually around to intervene and offer spiritual guidance...'Never Mind the Quality, Feel the Width' grew out of a single production for ITV's long-running Armchair Theatre anthology series.
Written by the celebrated team of Vince Powell and Harry Driver (Bless This House, Nearest and Dearest) and drawing heavily upon the writers' own backgrounds and experiences, this hugely popular series stars John Bluthal and Joe Lynch as the ever-warring Cohen and Kelly, with Cyril Shaps as Rabbi Levy and Eamon Kelly as Father Ryan; Roy Marsden, David Kossoff, Roy Barraclough and the legendary George Best are among the special guests. Although the series no longer exists in its entirety, this set contains every remaining episode of Series Three to Six, originally screened between 1969 and 1971, and the 1968 Christmas Special.
