A sitcom about two dreamy roommates in London. Gay unemployed actor Tom Farrell has a vague ambition to become the British Tom Cruise, but his career is going nowhere, and his love life isn't too hot either. Linda La Hughes is about as attractive as a centenary nun, yet has delusions of romantic love and actually aims at Tom, by far the most attractive man in her life, even if he is only into men. Yet as life keeps knocking them down, they are sort of condemned often to depend on each-other for want of better. Written by
Series 1, 2 and 3 all received a 15 certificate for the UK when released on DVD, whereas in the Republic of Ireland, Series 1 and 2 received a 15 certificate, but Series 3 received an 18 certificate there on earlier releases, meaning the box set as a whole had to have an 18 certificate, later this was adjusted to a 15 certificate too, so that the box set could also be sold with a 15 certificate.

One of the funniest and most original situation comedies ever to come out of Britain. It's coarse and over-the-top, and in the finest tradition of British saucy postcard humor. Replete with broad characterizations (straight female nymphomaniac living with mincing gay man, competing for the affections of straight and happily married black guy living downstairs), over-the-top situations, double entendres, and delicious one-liners, 'Gimme Gimme Gimme' is the inevitable next step for those who loved 'Are You Being Served', the 'Carry On' films, 'Girls On Top' and 'Absolutely Fabulous'.
Pity that other commitments prevented the writer and leads from pursuing the show beyond three seasons of 6 episodes.
Not for the twee, or Cliff Richard wannabes or those who think that it's shot on film and not on videotape, 'Gimme Gimme Gimme' is a must-have for the collection of any lover of camp or no-holds-barred comedy.
