When first offered to the BBC, head of comedy Geoffrey Perkins, wanted it made in the style of a traditional TV sitcom ie. in front of a studio audience and recorded on multiple studio video cameras.

This comedy is fantastic, it's got some good dialogue that flows well but not only that all of the characters who have ever graced the show have been fantastic. The show has become a much loved comedic gem with more than it's fair share of fans and the reason it has become such a legend is because it was so well written and directed in only a way a BBC comedy could be. The character of Jim Royle (played by Ricky Tomlinson) one of the main characters in this show is a mini institution himself and then you have the delectable Sue Johnston playing his wife Barbara. They worked together fantastically on Brookside and they gel so well on this show too, it's sad that there are no new episodes of this excellent comedy currently airing but there's hope for the future.
