For the first time the scripts from all four series of Rising Damp have been collected together. Introduction by Eric Chappell, the award-winning creator of the show, and showbusiness writer Richard Webber introduces every script.Reseña del editor:
Rising Damp has become a much-loved institution in British TV and it's the remarkable writing talent of Eric Chappell that ensures the continuing success of the show. Rising Damp: The Complete Scripts celebrates exactly that - the writing that brought Rising Damp ITV's first best situation comedy BAFTA. Meet Rigsby, the miserly landlord with an inflated sense of his own importance made famous by the comic genius of Leonard Rossiter. His delapidated house is home to an ever-changing population of hapless tenants, and three long-standing and long-suffering, residents: Alan the student; Philip, the African Prince; and of course Miss Jones, the lonely spinster who becomes the unwilling recipient of Rigsby's affections. For the first time, the scripts from all four series of Rising Damp have been collected together. There's an introduction to the book by Eric Chappell, the award-winning creator of the show, in which he explains 'Our success was assured, as long as I didn't blow up'. And each individual script is introduced by show business writer Richard Webber. Rising Damp: The Complete Scripts is a pays tribute to what made the show one of the great British comedies of the twentieth century, a classic that continues to thrill audiences twenty-five years on. To read the scripts is to re-enter the world of Rising Damp, and it is certainly to laugh out loud.
