      • Weddings can be a fraught affair at the best of times, but when Ted Simcock (David Jason) - the father of the groom, and the bride's mother, Liz Rodenhurst (Nicola Pagett - Upstairs Downstairs, An Awfully Big Adventure) make it a day to remember for all the wrong reasons, it sparks a chain of events that changes the lives of the snobbish Rodenhursts and working-class Simcocks forever.

        Adapted for the screen by David Nobbs - the man who also created The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, and based on his own novels A Bit of a Do and Fair Do?'s, A Bit of a Do is a sharply-written comedy drama which won David Jason the Best Actor Award at the 1990 British Comedy Awards. It also comes with a number of special features, which are:

        • Archive interview with Nicola Pagett on Sunday Sunday from 1989
        • Archive interview with creator David Nobbs on Tonight from 1988
        • Dogfood Dan and the Carmarthen Cowboy – a one-off comedy play from 1982 by David Nobbs about two long-distance lorry drivers

        Featuring an outstanding supporting cast that includes Paul Chapman (As Time Goes By, Colditz) as snooty dentist and father of the bride Laurence Rodenhurst, Gwen Taylor (Heartbeat, Barbara) as scorned wife Rita Simcock and Stephanie Cole (Tenko, Waiting for God) and Tim Wylton (My Hero, As Time Goes By) as family friends Betty and Rodney Sillitoe, A Bit of a Do sees the changing lives and fortunes of the group through various social occasions, including five weddings, a christening and a funeral…
