Based on the highly successful Radio 4 series, Little Britain is a hilarious exploration of the British Isles and its curious inhabitants after a successful pilot earlier this year. The programme travels from the Scottish highlands, through Wales, the tranquil English countryside and the less tranquil council estates of Britain's inner cities, while the narrator (Tom Baker) adds his insightful and eloquent comments for those less familiar with these fair Isles Written by
The tiny Dennis Waterman character is based on an actual British television celebrity also named Dennis Waterman. Waterman made a surprise appearance in the charity presentation Comic Relief Does Little Britain: Live (2007), interrupting Williams and Lucas performing a version of their Dennis Waterman sketch. During his appearance, Waterman gets to complain that he does not have a high voice, is not "a midget," and does not sing or write the theme tune of all his shows. To apologize, Williams and Lucas perform one of Waterman's songs with him. See more »

I try to find humour in most things,but someone saying I'm the only gay in the village and repeating yer but no but. I admit it has me beat, I could watch it a million times and still struggle to find anything funny about it. It is about as funny as Ant and Dec are talented, and that's saying something. What is it about Little Britain people find funny, even the scene with the disabled guy is not funny. Perhaps, what I am missing, is that everything nowadays has to be politically correct so as not to offend anyone. If this is the case I can maybe understand the lack of humour in the show, perhaps what is most baffling, is how it won an award
