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
Tom Baker is the Narrator in the show. Tom Baker is famous for playing the 4th Doctor Who. Although references to "Doctor Who" are made in the show: Matt Lucas had played The 2nd Doctor in a "Doctor Who" parody in the 3rd season of "Shooting Stars" and David Walliams later made a guest role in "Doctor Who" The God Complex (#6.11) as Gibbis.

I remember being rather excited about this show when the railers first appeared, even rushing out of the room whenever they came on as to not spoil the clips through over-saturation. This all seemed painfully ironic when after five minutes of the first episode I saw the same sketch, in a marginally different location, then another, and another. Not only this but there was a distinctly unfunny voice-over by the great Tom Baker and the worst laugh track I'd ever heard (since usurped by Hope And Faith's). By the end I had decided that I need never see another episode of Little Britain, apparently it was all in the trailers anyway. Occasionally dipping into "new" episodes every now and then has done nothing to disprove this.
Please try their earlier show Rock Profiles instead, it is far superior.
