About this deal

To those born in the mid 60's like me, the first nostalgia trip is when you play an episode and the old Thames television logo appears. The series uses made up words to insult each other, which couldnt be accused of racist because they were made up, were talking 50 years ago!

Eddie Booth (Jack Smethurst) hates his implacable Jamaican neighbours, but when the two families get a chance to win some money in a 'Love Thy Neighbour' competition, they pretend to bury the hatchet.

The impression I got was that the underlying commentry is that the times were changing and the behaviour of the time from ANY race was wrong and it simply doesn't get anyone anywhere. Viewing this series with modern sensibilities can make for a bit of a culture shock and I found myself wincing a little, shocked at the racist epithets casually spoken by the white protagonist, Eddie Booth. Story of 2 (sensible) ladies who get on, have a cup of tea, while their husbands try to get one over each other.

Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive. Eddie Booth is shown time and again to be the ignorant bigot he is, so this series portrays racism, but it's the black character that comes off best most of the time.

Eddie Booth ( Jack Smethurst), a white, working-class socialist is dismayed when Bill ( Rudolph Walker), a black, educated Conservative moves in next door with his wife Barbie ( Nina Baden-Semper). I am happy to report that Love Thy Neighbour is every bit as good, if not better, than I remembered. A white, working-class, socialist has his world turned upside down when a black, educated, Tory moves in next door.Entertainment Magpie Limited t/a Music Magpie is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority FRN 775278.

We will publish your review of Love Thy Neighbour: The Complete Series on DVD within a few days as long as it meets our guidelines. Contrary to what some people may think, Love Thy Neighbour actually sees Eddie Booth's character being bested by a far smarter, level headed and sensible black neighbour, Bill Reynolds, played by the superb Rudolph Walker.fan of 70's comedy this is an extremely well written and in some places very cleverly written comedy that reflected the sentiments and feelings of the day.
