Rising Damp (1980)
rating:
-1/10 (0 votes)
Rupert Rigsby (Leonard Rossiter) is the moth-eaten landlord of a seedy lodging house in a nameless northern town.

Among his tenants are Alan (Richard Beckinsale), Philip (Don Warrington) and Ruth (Frances De La Tour).

Alan and Philip provide a focus for Rigsby's many prejudices, while Ruth is his main object of desire.

The programme was based on Eric Chappell's stage play, "The Banana Box", in which the landlord was called 'Rooksby'.

Rising Damp (1974-78) is considered by many the best sitcom that ITV has ever produced. Traditionally the BBC made the British classics, largely because a structure was in place to encourage script development, there were regular repeats to build audiences and commercial pressures were less intense. However Rising Damp is as good as the Corporation's best shows of the 1970s and reruns on Channel 4 have introduced the programme to new audiences.
