The cult of Steptoe & Son

Ah, but if only the same level of energy had been directed towards my post on the new Steptoe and Son biopic. I spent twice as long on it, but received only a single comment (although it was a good one). The Curse of Steptoe is set to run on BBC4 on March 14. It’s an excellent example of working class comedy and I think probably the finest sitcom ever made.
