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

This TV series is not for the faint of heart and what I mean by that is those easily offended by the complete lack of Political Correctness should not watch this series. Who needs political correctness anyway when David Walliams and Matt Lucas come together in this incredible sketch comedy. I can't decide which character I love best. The Rubbish Transvestite, Emily Howard, performed by David Walliams is lovable in an outrageous 'No-She-Didn't' kind of way. Daffyd Thomas, charmingly portrayed by Matt Lucas, completely refuses to acknowledge the other gays around him for he is 'The only gay in the Village!' and therefore leads a lonely life to protect himself from rejection. Vicky Pollard has to be my favorite this week. Her inability to string together a comprehensive sentence is perfectly executed with lightening speed. I don't know how anyone could walk away without being impressed by this team of writers\actors. The performances are phenomenal. The Dialog is very strong. I'm purely gutted that I'm not able to watch the series while here in America. Saying that, the majority of Americans are just not going to 'Get it'. Having also said that, I'm an American and I love it!
