      • Ray Galton and Alan Simpson have long been regarded as Britain’s most successful comedy writing partnership, having created and written the long-running series Hancock’s Half Hour and Steptoe and Son. Turning their hand to one-off stories, The Galton & Simpson Playhouse consisted of seven individual comedy plays, with the stand-alone format allowing for a wide variety of characters and storylines. The high calibre of the scripts attracted the cream of comedy actors from 1970s television, including Arthur Lowe, Leonard Rossiter, Richard Briers, John Bird, Frances de la Tour, Patricia Hayes and Warren Mitchell.
