"Potter - the complete collection 3CD."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a little unusual as Arthur Lowe died so the third season has Robin Bailey (Rumpole of the Bailey) instead of Arthur Lowe as ‘Potter’. If you like Arthur Lowe (Dads Army) you will love the first two seasons (1979, 1980-), but perhaps see the third season (1983) as a different series since Potter is not the same character, but it's amusing in it's own right. I give the first 2 seasons 4 stars, but the 3rd only 2 stars.

Description

For many a long year, Redvers Potter has been head of the family firm – Pottermints (the hotter mints!). A man used to being obeyed, he is authoritative and decisive. At 58, he has decided to sell the business. Mrs. Potter, who has had the dubious honour of holding her position for some thirty years, has taken to vodka at the prospect of having her husband at home all day. She has long dreaded his retirement and is learning to cope with the extra time he now has to ignore her – or alternatively to advise her how to do things he should be doing himself.

Not unnaturally, with time now on his hands, he tends to interfere with other people's lives: “I'll help people. That's what I'll do. They are usually simple creatures; bloody idiots most of them,” or rather, as his neighbours see it, “probe his nose into other people's business!” Potter's enthusiasm for ‘helping others’ though is equalled only by his ineptitude in so doing!

The brilliant Arthur Lowe (DAD'S ARMY) creates the perfect, pompous portrayal of Redvers Potter in this classic BBC comedy series from the prolific pen of Roy Clarke (OPEN ALL HOURS, KEEPING UP APPEARANCES). Noel Dyson (FATHER, DEAR FATHER) is his long-suffering wife, with comedy favourite John Barron (YES, MINISTER, THE FALL AND RISE OF REGINALD PERRIN) as the vicar – his friend and drinking companion who shares a similar philosophy to Potter's, and Harry H. Corbett (STEPTOE & SON) as villain Harry Tooms.

In 1982 after two hilarious series, Arthur Lowe sadly passed away – just as a third series of POTTER was in pre-production. Too advanced to be cancelled, Robin Bailey (RUMPOLE OF THE BAILEY) stepped into the role for a further seven episodes – all of which are included in this release as a bonus.

So prepare to be organised by POTTER, with his unique ability to create havoc where peace once reigned!
