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 series contains a number of references to Doctor Who (1963) including a character called Matthew Waterhouse (Matthew Waterhouse played Adric in "Doctor Who") and another called Michael Craze (Michael Craze played Ben Jackson in "Doctor Who"). Tom Baker, who played The Doctor from 1974-1981, is also the announcer. See more »
[to Dennis Waterman about his role in a stage production of Macbeth]
No, it's straight theatre. No music. So what do you think?
Mr. Macbeth is a naughty ma-an, do do do do / He gone and killed anudder ma-an, do do do do / I hath a good idea / Just thou keep me near / I'll be so go-od for the Scottish play...
I'll tell 'em you're busy...

Great first series, but terrible second and third....
I saw this series when it first premiered in 2003, and I really liked it! It had characters like Des Kaye and Ray McCooney, who were actually quite funny. I liked the show a lot, and couldn't wait for it to return.
Then series 2 arrived. I was shocked by the drop in quality. No more clever, versatile characters like Ray McCooney. Repetitive, disgusting (and not in a funny way) characters like Bubbles De Vere and that puking woman (can't remember her name!) were the focus now. Even classic characters like Lou and Andy had become shadows of themselves.
I saw series 3, in hopes it would improve, but to my dismay it got even worse! I left the series with a bitter taste in my mouth, and went off to re-watch a true classic (Brass Eye).
I saw the rating of 8.0, and was amazed at how high it was. One great series, followed by two god-awful ones, does not deserve something higher than a 4.
My advice, buy series 1 if you're curious. Save your money on the rest (including Little Britain USA).
