In Sickness and in Health Fan Tributes12 Karl from uk: A great show,we need more classics like this.i've just got 'em all on dvd,great to see 'em again after watching first time around.
11 JAY from Pakistan: I really admire the show and spend hours on you tube every day to wtach them all again and again. I wonder if anyone can send me full clip of Alf at Sabu's Genera; store after his wife death. On you tube its 5.03 mins clip and missing last few seconds.
10 bob from brumpton: recently bought all the dvd`s. made me realise how much i miss irene handel and patricia hayes, you could not help but warm to them, and alf?well, alf is alf.
9 Mike Sherwood from East Sussex: I think one of the funniest episodes was one involving the cast taking part in a seance with Irene Handle playing the medium. When she farted and Alf said ( a message from the grave, It smells like something from the grave ) one of my funniest tv moments ever.
8 richard from harlow essex: brilliant comedy, i am glad dandy nicholls found the strength for one last appearance, i especially liked ken campbells cameo appearances as alfs neighbour, johnny speight a true genius.
7 sarah mcentee from bahrain: Alf Garnet is a bloody gem, my saudi husband is bowled over by him, i bought him Alfs dvd's at xmas & they are his pride & joy. Long live Alf!
6 Oliver Liddard(Age12) from Bridgend: I always remember watching in sickness and in health on a dodgy VCR taped off of LWT. A great show which should be on much earlier. Some of us have school during the week!!
5 emma webb from eastleigh,hants: All round good programme - very funny. It's upsetting that Dandy Nichols looked so frail and ill. She still managed to make the audience laugh calling alf a pig.
I Loved the theme tune too.
4 from: Great classic comedy, but why do you edit-out so much (at least 6 minutes per episode), It spolls the scripts.
3 from: THE greatest episode was when he tried to fight Spike Milligan at the dance hall.
2 robert adair from british ulster: my favourite episode was when my garnet got stuck on a window ledge and fell on a beer cart
1 John Brandom from Milton Keynes: My favourite memory is of Alf being stuck on the window ledge being verbally abused by some youths whist being stranded 15 feet up calling him BALDY!!!!!!
