i am a great fan of galton and simpson and the shows "lead man cometh" and "the desperate hours "with leonard are again classics ....especially the latter where he plays an escaped convict

i am sure you are all aware of this , but if not please try and see it

it is an acting tour de force with leonard and harry h corbett Cool

Easily the best Steptoe episode, I reckon. It always seemed to me that Galton and Simpson were radio writers. Loads of talk and very little action. Some of the Hancock and Steptoe TV series were insufferably talky. I know it's often good dialogue, but for me it pales in comparison to Eric Chappell or Clement & Le Frenais's sparkling banter.
