It pays tribute to the marketing powers of Sony Pictures that this boxset arrives a mere four months before Christmas; and as novelty packaging goes, the brown-stone whopper screams sensitive, character-specific shopping more than any three-for-one.

A series of drawers contain all the Python hits: And Now For Something Completely Different, The Holy Grail, The Life of Brian, The Meaning of Life, and Live at the Hollywood Bowl. You might argue that the television series, despite its appeal to ageing American comics, is starting to show its age, but the discipline of the movies and the tightness of the writing still hold up.
