Storyline

Based on the highly successful Radio 4 series, Little Britain is a hilarious exploration of the British Isles and its curious inhabitants after a successful pilot earlier this year. The programme travels from the Scottish highlands, through Wales, the tranquil English countryside and the less tranquil council estates of Britain's inner cities, while the narrator (Tom Baker) adds his insightful and eloquent comments for those less familiar with these fair Isles Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Matt Lucas and David Walliams were both huge fans of Doctor Who (1963) as children and Little Britain contains a number of references to the series, including a character called Matthew Waterhouse (Matthew Waterhouse played the companion Adric in the 1980s) and another called Michael Craze (Michael Craze played the companion Ben Jackson in the 1960s). Tom Baker, who played the Doctor from 1974-1981, is the narrator. Lucas had played the Second Doctor in a "Doctor Who" parody in the third season of "Shooting Stars" before landing a recurring role as a companion for both Matt Smiths and Peter Capaldis Doctor. Walliams, however, only had a guest role in "Doctor Who" The God Complex (#6.11) as Gibbis. See more »

Narrator: British justice is the best in the world. Anyone who disagrees is either gay, a woman or a mental.

Crazy Credits

Every episode of the first series ends with a different farewell message from the narrator and a "world record attempt" sketch. With the second series, the credits roll over the end of a sketch starring Andy and Lou at the end of each episode. The messages from the narrator are still there in the second series. See more »

In 2005 the Australian Broadcasting Corporation showed repeat episodes as fillers, condensed to 15 minutes with the title Very Little Britain. See more »

User Reviews

Unbelievably Good...
29 May 2005 | by bassist_gurlSee all my reviews

I live in France, and I am virtually the only person at my school who does not have Sky. Therefore, I never saw Little Britain on television, but I heard everyone else at school talking about it and quoting it. So I decided to get this DVD.

Little Britain is possibly one of the smartest, funniest comedies I have ever seen. It was EVEN better than I expected it. If you aren't British, you will probably not understand all of the humor. Most of the stereotypes in the show are exaggerated, but actually real. In Britain, every town has loads of Vicky Pollards. Its hard to believe, but true.

Little Britain is absolutely Unmissable I give in 9.9 out of 10 (because nothing is perfect)
