The writing is brilliant. I get something more out of each viewing. We watch one of the 60 or so episodes every night, before bed. have done so since series one, 10 or so years ago. Only difference is that now it takes two months to get back to episode 1. We love it. We know virtually all the lines and jokes. We say them to each other and laugh. Our lives would not be complete without Derren's Benidorm. Thank you so much Derren Litten, you have made us so happy.

As you would expect from the costa blanca. My idea of holiday hell, but very funny. The last series not as funny I thought and has lost some of the old main characters. Got to see mel in his thongs though.

I love this comedy and got this on special offer. So was cheaper to buy the box set instead of the few series I was missing. The only issue is the specials are in the wrong place they have been put at the end of all of the episodes. The Easter special not only links series 2-3 it is the 2and part of the last episode of series 2. It is the same with the Christmas special it links 2-3.
