Win the complete Sykes box set

68 episodes over 12 discs!

All 68 episodes of Sykes have been released on one DVD box set for the first time today.

And we have three copies of the 12-disc set to give away.

Starring Eric Skyes and Hattie Jacques as cohabiting 'identical' Twins, this slightly surreal sitcom ran on the BBC for seven years from 1972 to 1979 and followed the pair's previous collaboration Sykes And A…

This series also featured Richard Wattis as their snobbish neighbour Mr Brown and Deryck Guyler – the Inspiration for the voice of the Churchill insurance dog – as PC Cork Turnbull.

Sykes also has the distinction of being the last TV show Peter Sellers made, appearing in the 1972 episode, Stranger.

Released by DVD label Network, the new box set also includes a raft of extras including a tongue-in-cheek biography of Skyes, behind-the-scenes footage, an interview, and a featurette showing how the older footage was restored.

The set - which runs for a wapping 1,970 minutes – is on sale now with an rrp of £89.99. And here's another clip:

To stand a chance of winning one of our copies, just answer the following question by July 9, when we will select the winner at random from all correct answers received. Good luck! Usual terms and conditions apply.
