BBC sketch show that while continuing to show the misadventures of a series of popular characters now also introduces a slew of new oddballs and misfits for us to enjoy including Tory Boy and The Lovely Wobbly Randy Old Ladies.
Caroline Aherne exited the show following the third series in 2000, wishing to move on to new projects. It was thought that it would continue in spite of Aherne's absence, but Ricky Tomlinson also quit the series, to ensure that it did not continue without creator and co-star Aherne's input. Both Aherne and Tomlinson returned in 2006 for the special "The Queen of Sheba", which Aherne co-wrote. See more »
May God forgive you Jim Royle for talking ill of the dead like that.

Jim Royle is a "hard working" father who tries to look after his wild family.
I'll rephrase all of that: Jim Royle is a lazy old man who sits in a chair all day long watching television, and the other members of the family are just as bad. The son (Anthony) does all their work for them. I love this TV series, I find it very amusing and always tune in on Monday nights! You HAVE to watch this!
