    Synopsis:
    Spike Milligan’s Q was one of the most surreal sketch
    shows ever made and a huge influence on Monty Python’s Flying Circus,
    which launched six months after Q first aired in 1969. Now this highly
    sought-after BAFTA-nominated series gets its first ever home entertainment
    release courtesy of Simply Media, with Q Volume 1: Series 1-3 released
    on DVD on 21 November 2016.

    Considered one of the best examples of the British Comedy Award winner’s
    eccentricity and ‘stream-of-consciousness’ humour, Spike Milligan’s
    sketches in Q make outrageous leaps from one subject matter or location
    to another, stopping with no apparent conclusion, and not shying away from
    controversial matters. Filled with invention and taking huge risks, Q
    provides the perfect showcase for Milligan’s surreal wit.

    It is clear to see Monty Python in Spike’s work, and the Pythons were
    quick to nab director Ian MacNaughton for their own show. The
    series features regular appearances from John Bluthal (The Vicar of
    Dibley
    ), John D. Collins (‘Allo ‘Allo), Peter Jones (The
    Rag Trade
    ), and Margaret Nolan (Goldfinger), with seasoned
    satirists Richard Ingrams and John Wells prominent in the rarely
    seen early episodes.

    Enjoy the madness and mayhem of Spike Milligan’s Q5, Q6, and Q7
    again in this landmark DVD release which contains all surviving episodes from
    series one, and the complete series two and three.
