Two important reasons for the public’s infatuation with Eric and Ern are nailed in the last of this lovely series. First, as fan Stephen Mangan identifies: “You always felt you were inside the joke with them.” And second, their show was a great leveller. Penelope Keith, a guest in 1977, recalls Eric telling her, “You’re known for being dignified. We’re going to get rid of all that.” And so they did, making the elegant actress clamber off an unfinished staircase in a Fred-and-Ginger spoof. But Keith’s street cred soared after that.


The series concludes with a look back at the comedy duo's Christmas specials, and how they became an annual tradition between 1969 and 1977, attracting a spectacular range of guest stars. Narrated by Victoria Wood.
