    Both firmly of its time and spectacularly ahead of it, The Strange World of Gurney Slade is to television comedy what The Prisoner has become to television drama - brilliantly inventive, startlingly surreal and unlike anything previously seen on television. Anthony Newley stars as an actor who walks off the set of a banal sit-com and into a fantasy world of his own imagination.

    In this surreal odyssey through his own personal alternative reality he indulges in random conversations with both animals and inanimate objects it s a world in which characters can step out of advertising posters and where he can hear the most intimate thoughts of passers by. An unpredictable, absurdist fantasy, Gurney Slade created an indelible impression upon anyone who saw it. Created by Newley and written by the highly talented Sid Green and Dick Hills (who were soon to become key writers for Morecambe and Wise) this series has been newly transferred from the original 35mm film elements specifically for this release.
