Did You Know?


James Corden and Ruth Jones initially wrote a stand alone, hour long episode relating to a family wedding in Wales. They wrote a backstory of the couple getting married, forming the basis of the Gavin and Stacey relationship. The BBC liked the back story so much that they asked Corden and Jones to write a 6 episode series, culminating in the initial Wedding episode. See more »


In series 3, both Bryn and Gavin's cars have completely different registration numbers from the previous series. Gavin's blue Saxo has changed from a T-reg (MY 1999) to an X-reg (MY 2000). Bryn's green Picasso has changed from CV02 (MY 2002, registered in Cardiff) to HV54 (MY 2004, registered in Portsmouth). They are obviously different cars. See more »

I'm not gonna lie to you but, BARRYBADOS IS IMMENSE.
2 January 2020 | by Weirdo-MagnetSee all my reviews

Now i might sound a little bit biased as i was born and still live in Barry Town. But i have to say i can relate to all of the characters in this show. Although Nessa is slightly exaggerated, i actually know people that sound like her. Nessa along with Pam have to be my favourite characters as they are polar opposites of each other but, both equally as funny..... in different ways. This show is HILARIOUS! the jokes, the innuendos, the one liners, the catchphrases, the characters - they are all "cracking" (yes, Barry people actually say that). The only negative i have (its a tiny one) is that no one in Barry, NO ONE! has a welsh accent as strong as Stacey, Bryn and Gwen. After the Christmas special, i am so expecting another series. Fingers crossed. 9/10
