All seven series of Andy Hamilton's fiendishly funny award-winning comedy set in Hell
'Satirical, philosophical - and devilishly funny' Gillian Reynolds, Daily Telegraph
Welcome to Hell - where Oliver Reed can never quite catch the barman's eye. In this 21 CD box set, which contains all seven series, get ready for some wicked one-liners and scorching satire.
Satan is fed up after a millennia in charge of Hell, and the prospect of an eternity still running the damned place. Although he does enjoy playing pranks on the world of the living, and devising wry torments for the souls in his keeping, he often wistfully recalls his past as an archangel.
Over the course of the series we meet various famous figures now languishing in Hell, including a foul-mouthed Jane Austen, a sexually predatory Florence Nightingale and a less-than-heroic Samson. Satan takes Thomas on a tour of his life, Scumspawn has trouble with a pushy computer, and love drives the Professor to extreme action. Satan and the Professor find a huge, empty space in Hell - when they enter Scumspawn's brain - a Health and Safety officer notes that the lighting is inadequate, and Satan punishes a feng shui expert. And then Edith arrives...
Seven series of the Sony Award-winning comedy (plus the two-part 2002 Christmas Special) starring Andy Hamilton as Satan and a regular cast of acclaimed actors including Annette Crosbie as Edith, Timothy West as God, James Grout as The Professor, Jimmy Mulville as Thomas and Robert Duncan as Scumspawn.
