About this deal

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. 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).

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. Story of 2 (sensible) ladies who get on, have a cup of tea, while their husbands try to get one over each other. So refreshing to watch a comedy from my childhood, without the crude rude swearing and disgusting jokes of nowadays, without gratuitous sex or violence. Its comic spin on racism, politics and general childish antagonism was loved by millions and the series remains a firm favourite to this day.If your easily offended then this series isn’t for you but if you’ve got a sense of humour then get this set, especially if like me you wasn’t born when this show was originally aired your going to wet yourself as it is so funny. A television comedy which centres around the relationship between two neighbours, as they attempt to live and work together, and their long suffering wives.

Finally, having watched it through (and found it very funny) it seems that people have selective memories.A white, working-class, socialist has his world turned upside down when a black, educated, Tory moves in next door.
