Alternate Versions

The initial BBC television broadcast of the first episode contained a sound clip of Joni Mitchell's song 'Big Yellow Taxi'. Due to music rights issues, this clip was removed from the VHS video versions. However, the BBC's initial release on DVD accidentally left the sound clip intact. This version was quickly withdrawn from sale and replaced by a 2 disc version with the sound clip correctly silenced. See more »

User Reviews

An excellent addition
9 December 2002 | by baza666See all my reviews

The comic genius that is Steve Coogan has done it again. This series is certainly as good as the previous which had some genuine laugh out loud moments. Excellent! The First episode being the best, followed by the fourth, an absolute classic BRITISH gem of a comedy
