Britain's Best Sitcom
20 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was the voting show that I needed to see more than any other (at the time). Jonathan Ross presented a show filled with 100 great sitcoms, e.g. Father Ted. But the last show was the most important, the top ten. We at home had to vote for our favourite sitcom with the help of opinions from their celebrity advocates. These celebrities included Carol Vorderman (The Vicar of Dibley), Johnny Vaughan (Porridge), Rowland Rivron (One Foot in the Grave), Phill Jupitus (Dad's Army), Clarissa Dickson-Wright (Open All Hours), David Dickinson (Only Fools and Horses), Armando Iannucci (Yes, Minister), Ulrika Jonsson (The Good Life), Jack Dee (Fawlty Towers), and the one I wanted to win John Sergeant (Blackadder). In the end, after nearly 12 million phone call votes it was between Blackadder and Only Fools and Horses. Only Fools and Horses won. Not a bad result, but it would have been nicer if it was Blackadder that won. But apart from that, a good programme.
