He didn't interact with the audience at all and the material wasn't very topical either.

I have to wonder was the script already written? I just think there could have done a better job of this, with more interaction and more content. There managed to do that with Bob monkhouse advert, with new content added in with old stuff.

Could there not have followed out the original show?

Most of it was verbatim (audio copy?) from the Best Of Les Dawson DVD, as released by the BBC


Nothing from Sez les?

what I mean is was the script for the 1993 show never written down?

Not sure what people are getting at. They weren't recreating Les, they were just using existing footage in a different way. They had to write a script around what had been recorded when Les was alive, which they then composited into a different setting (i.e. cut the video with his face out and stuck it on a CGI body with a bit of texture mapping onto a head to give it some 3D-ness)

The Bob Monkhouse advert wasn't interactive - it was just cleverly scripted.

Although a good deal of the Monkhouse advert used an impersonator with a slightly higher pitch.
