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 second series was first shown on BBC Three from 19 October 2004 onwards. When repeated on BBC One in December, it had some of the more graphic references, (the gay/lesbian sex references in the Daffyd sketches for example) cut out and replaced with new material. This was due to a decision that these references were unsuitable for a mainstream audience. See more »
Old Ma Evans' lodger:
Well, I seem to have passed your gay test, so I must be gay.
No, you are not a gay. I am the gay. You're probably just a little bit poofy!

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 »
"Little Britain" is a wonderful comedy series starring the fantastic Mark Lucas and David Walliams. Taking an irreverent look at life in Britain, they tease and giggle their way through 30 min episodes poking fun at every one possible. The truly genius thing about the series is, we all know at least one of the characters.
The unruly chavette girl who thinks everyone is a slag (Vicky Pollard), The mean (and fat) leader of the "Fat Fighters" (Marjorie Dawes), "the only gay in the village" (Daffyd) and many others...
Meet the very bad transvestite Emily Howard, who swears she is a lady (but have you seen the hair on her legs?!) Sebastian, the Prime Ministers assistant, with an unhealthy lust...
The script writing is fantastic, the comedy timing is amazing, and it works so well. There is not one thing that I could say was wrong with this, except that maybe its too short? And we need some more Vicky Pollard! The new series is set to be even better than the first with many new and amusing characters. The long and the short of it? Its the dogs *ahem*...
Don't give me no evils!
