Hugely influential, surreal and anarchic parody of the variety show format. Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer introduce a selection of eccentric characters. The show often appears to be completely random, ramshackle and nonsensical.
Popular BBC sketch show that introduces a whole host of memorable characters such as Tim-Nice-But-Dim, Wayne and Waynetta Slob, The Old Gits and teenagers Kevin and Perry. The show spawned a slew of spin-off series and films.
BBC sketch show that while continuing to show the misadventures of a series of popular characters now also introduces a slew of new oddballs and misfits for us to enjoy including Tory Boy and The Lovely Wobbly Randy Old Ladies.

"Catterick", starring Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer is brilliant! The first episode is very strange, but rest assured all will be explained--eventually.
The series premise is that Chris Palmer (Bob Mortimer) returns to Northern England, to find the son he abandoned years ago (when the child was four). He meets up with his brother, Carl (Vic Reeves); and the two go in search of Chris's son. They do this by interrupting the robbery of a car dealership to steal a car (yes, you read that right); thus invoking a series of catastrophic events without realising it).
The end, which I CAN'T reveal here is a brilliant piece of existentialism! (And trust me, I normally can't stand existentialism, but in this it's brilliant).
In terms of style, *Catterick*, mixes music, humor, comedy, drama, and some VERY dark bits, into a sublime mix.
