The Television Series MUP

  • The only academic book to consider all of Perry and Croft's collaborative sitcoms
  • One of very few critical pieces on the later series, 'Hi-de-Hi!' and 'You Rang M'Lord?'
  • Takes a cultural studies approach, and considers their work in terms of their representations of class, gender, sexuality and race
  • Analyses individual scenes and episodes, evaluates the contribution made by the two writers to the genre, and locates the sitcoms in the immediate contexts of their production
  • Includes new interview material from David Croft
