Series cast summary:
Abdullah Afzal ...
Nish Nathwani ...


Sitcom following the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr. Khan and his long suffering family. Khan is a larger-than-life character, a small man with big dreams and strident opinions. Like many of us he's struggling to make ends meet - but he's proud of his thriftiness - witness his 1979 suit and ancient yellow Mercedes. Things would be so much easier if everyone just listened to him and followed his lead, but his obsessively house-proud wife and two feisty daughters have other ideas.

Did You Know?


Although the show is set in Sparkhill, Birmingham, there are no longer any suitable TV studios in Birmingham, (since the closure of BBC Pebble Mill in 2004,) so the show is recorded at the BBC's new Media City studios in Salford, Greater Manchester. However, creator and star Adil Ray insists that some location filming is done in Birmingham for each series. See more »

Two thumbs up

Humane, outrageously funny and a true depiction of the real world.

I am a Muslim and a Pakistani. I have watched five episodes of the season and have still to find anything offensive against Islam. Yes it is critical of the way Muslims go by in their day to day dealings. But this is the beauty of the season it shows Muslims as humans and ordinary people with challenges that normal people face and how they cope with them. The director and writer of the season have done a brilliant job showing a different dimension of the Muslim life something other than the stereotyped image of Muslims.

It is a must watch for anybody who is Muslim, Pakistani or British. If you are all three and have an open mind I bet you will get a stomach ache after watching this.
