I first saw the Q series as re-runs when I was a child. I've been a fan of Spike Milligan's work and writing ever since.
The Q series was a first glimpse of the totally surreal in TV humour. It sought to put on screen what Spike and others had achieved on radio with the Goon Show. I absolutely loved it because it appeared so disorganised. Some sketches run into others, some leap to unexpected subjects or locations randomly. Many scenes simply had no conclusion, except for the entire cast advancing towards the camera, chanting, 'What are we gonna do now? What are we gonna do now?' Hilarious!
Another set of re-runs is well overdue, or a DVD release of this landmark British comedy series. It is a travesty that some of it was wiped by the BBC.moreless
