Description
The landscape for Outside Edge is village cricket, played to a low standard but in deadly earnest by its white-flannelled protagonists. The principal focus, however, is on marital harmony, and two relationships in particular: Roger Dervish, cricket club captain, with his mousy wife Miriam, and their social inferiors Kevin, a slob, and his zesty wife Maggie. Author Richard Harris drew out these four characters to perfection, and his script - laden with awkwardness, pregnant pauses, sly asides, digs and despatches - brilliantly encapsulated the repressed discomfort of middle-class middle-England.

Features
The key relationship is between Roger and Miriam (Mim) Dervish. Roger plans his Brent Park Cricket Club campaigns like a military director, even wearing the club blazer at home. Chauvinistic and self-important, he speaks brusquely and patronisingly to Mim because, bereft of sensitivity, he knows no other way. Besides, he probably reasons, Mim not only expects him to crack the whip but respects it. Roger demands maximum spousal co-operation in exchange for only the very occasional cheek-peck or 'Love you' sentiment called out in her general direction. (When angry, this becomes 'love you, okay, fair enough' through gritted teeth.) To hurry Mim along, Roger barks 'chop chop', oblivious to her annoyance. Mim's problem is that she is so repressed that this anger stands no chance of being forcefully expressed. She knows her place: she makes the cricket-match teas (meaning not just tea but sandwiches and much more), serving the food on trestle tables she herself has erected. She rushes around as Roger's lap-dog, doing his bidding while perpetually biting her lip to help keep the wheels oiled. Sex between Roger and Mim, one suspects, is performed rarely and with the light off. They have two children, both away at university. This 2 DVD set contains episodes 1 through 7.
