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

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 »

Great!
5 January 2005 | by djhunnicutSee all my reviews

Britain! Britain! Britain! There's an old saying in Britain. 'Britain is top banana, yay!' I have had the pleasure of meeting both Matt Lucas and David Walliams dressed as Andy and Lou at a series 1 DVD signing, and touched Matt Lucas' head! and David Walliams did a really cool handshake with me! Probably the funniest British comedy of the new millennium, Little Britain leaves us giggling and shouting out quotes from last night's episode from offices and playgrounds all across Britain! Hilarious characters, the amount of racism and homophobic behaviour of it characters are what make it even more funny! I must see for anyone who respects British comedy! 10 / 10!!!
