The Pub Landlord is a small-minded, bullet headed Little Englander whose prejudices mask a surprisingly sensitive, vulnerable and confused man. He is King of his own world but outside of the pub he is nothing. His wife and son have left him and the pub is grotty and unpopular under his patronage. Yet his few regulars stay loyal to him.

Emma Pierson, who replaced Julia Sawalha as barmaid, also appeared an an episode of Absolutely Fabulous, playing an actress portraying Julia's character Saffron in her autobiographical play (in the episode "Small Opening"). See more »
I don't know what Teotihuacan was watching, but it obviously wasn't Time Gentlemen Please.
My wife is American and it's about the only British comdy she watches, laughs at and really enjoys. The programme has now moved on and Julia is no longer there, so any other Australians put off by Teotihuacan's comments can rest assured that they won't be cringing at her accent, not that I thought it was that bad. The strong characterisations (slutty Aussie, maloderous Drunk, still in the closet gay pervy guy, failed-at-everything landlord) and catchphrases add immensly to the humour of this thoroughly hilarious show. Perhaps it's just *too* British for Teotihuacan to understand.
Give it a try!
