Caroline Aherne exited the show following the third series in 2000, wishing to move on to new projects. It was thought that it would continue in spite of Aherne's absence, but Ricky Tomlinson also quit the series, to ensure that it did not continue without creator and co-star Aherne's input. Both Aherne and Tomlinson returned in 2006 for the special "The Queen of Sheba", which Aherne co-wrote. See more »

We've only had access to BBC Canada for a few weeks now, but I'm finding myself making sure that I'm in front of the tv at 8:30 on Tuesday nights. I can't think of any Canadian or American shows that I HAVE to watch, even season premieres or finales! The Royle Family is unlike anything I've ever watched before; nothing happens but it's riveting! The characters rarely move from their couch, and when they do, it's just to stray into the kitchen to brew a cuppa. It makes American humour seem extremely brash and forced. Two thumbs up!!
