An eternal dreamer, Billy Fisher is a likeable North Country lad with a habit of losing himself in his own overactive imagination. These flights of fancy do him no favours at the funeral parlour where he works – and his daydreaming at home proves a constant source of annoyance to his Dad!
Adapted from the highly successful novel/play/film by writing team Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall, Billy Liar is a unique and whimsical sitcom featuring memorable performances from Jeff Rawle as Billy, George A. Cooper as his continuously apoplectic Dad and Colin Jeavons as the mortifying Mr. Shadrack. Arguably the funniest show from one of Britain’s premier writing teams, this set contains all 26 episodes.
