All Gas and Gaiters

Show Summary

Clerical comedies were very popular during the 1960s and 1970s. It often seemed as if every one of them starred Derek Nimmo, who played dithery curate Mervyn Noote in this popular example of the genre. All Gas and Gaiters began as an episode of 'Comedy Playhouse' and also starred William Mervyn (as the Bishop) and Robertson Hare (as the Archdeacon). Trying (usually unsuccessfully) to bring some order and sanity to clerical life was the dour Dean, played initially by John Barron, then by Ernest Clark and later by John Barron again. The master tapes for most episodes were wiped early in the 1970s. Some sources, however, indicate that recordings still exist for two episodes from Series 4 and all episodes of Series 5.
