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 »
Nice to meet you

I don't like him. I want him to go. I prefer Tony Hadley.
Sorry about this, George. You'd better go.

Caught this on BBC America and have been Tivoing it ever since. The characters are great, but some tend to do the same joke over and over again. So, though this may not be a wonderful show for extended viewing, the first few episodes you see will have you in stitches.
Overall, I've seen about 7 episodes and haven't gotten tired of it yet. The show draws its humor from a deep well of absurdity, a natural resource the British seem to have in abundance.
They tell me I'm required to put 10 lines of text in this comment, so for the rest of this message, I will make giraffe noises.
