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 »
Totally unique.Tremendous observational comedy.We all know folk like these characters. The writing and acting are top notch especially Ricky T who really is one of the best character actors that the UK has produced. The episodes can be watched time and time again and are still funny after repeated viewings.Very few UK sitcoms are totally shot on film but in this case it lends a documentary feel to the whole proceedings.Thoroughly enjoyable and well reccomended.
