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 Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" is considered as a major influence behind "Little Britain". See more »

Every episode of the first series ends with a different farewell message from the narrator and a "world record attempt" sketch. With the second series, the credits roll over the end of a sketch starring Andy and Lou at the end of each episode. The messages from the narrator are still there in the second series. See more »
Watching this show really makes my blood boil, and especially knowing how horribly popular the show has become. What many fans of this show don't seem to realise is liking Little Britain is equivalent to liking crap commercial pop music like Crazy Frog.
The show could have been written by an immature 10 year old, as it consists of childish and sometimes offensive gags (An old woman who can't stop urinating in public) along with irritating catchphrases (Eh-Eh-Ehhhhh) whilst the one-joke one-dimensional characters (Marjorie Dawes is an inferior rip-off of Pauline from LOG) appear every episode repeating the same joke, that is funny once but not funny the 18th time. It is very predictable whilst the performances, especially from David Walliams, are very poor and unfunny.
I liked the first few episodes, but quickly realised they were repeating themselves over and over again, and in the next 2 series more intellectually comic creations (the Scottish hotel-owner) were dropped for terrible slapstick characters who only seem to disgust (the prejudiced vomiting woman, the two fat naked ladies).
Little Britain brings nothing new to comedy and is only either repeating what other comedy shows have done or is making crude uninspired characters out of British stereotypes. Watching Monty Python it's as if originality in British comedy has declined over the years with only a few exceptions, such as Spaced, The Office and the brilliant League of Gentlemen.
