Written by the acclaimed team of Galton and Simpson (Hancock, Steptoe and Son, Citizen James), the series was inspired by Dennis Potter’s more-serious, if more naked, Casanova. Little did they realise the scandal that would result when TV watchdog Mary Whitehouse rallied her troops. Casanova ’73 would not see ‘74. Now, for the first time on DVD, audiences can once again enjoy Leslie Phillips at the top of his form, bringing his theatrically-honed skills to Casanova ’73, filmed before a live audience, with all the hilarity of 70’s British Farce at its height.
