Sitcom following the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr. Khan and his long suffering family. Khan is a larger-than-life character, a small man with big dreams and strident opinions. Like many of us he's struggling to make ends meet - but he's proud of his thriftiness - witness his 1979 suit and ancient yellow Mercedes. Things would be so much easier if everyone just listened to him and followed his lead, but his obsessively house-proud wife and two feisty daughters have other ideas.

Did You Know?


Although the show is set in Sparkhill, Birmingham, there are no longer any suitable TV studios in Birmingham, (since the closure of BBC Pebble Mill in 2004,) so the show is recorded at the BBC's new Media City studios in Salford, Greater Manchester. However, creator and star Adil Ray insists that some location filming is done in Birmingham for each series. See more »

better than some of the reviews say
4 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

i liked citizen khan and i think the first 2 episodes have been quite promising.

Adil Ray is brilliant as Mr Khan and made me laugh with his one liners and the way he parks his car on the drive and the way he thinks he is more important than he actually is.

Episode 1 was good as it introduced you to the Khan's.

Episode 2 was even better when Mr Khan's mother in law went to the house.

Citizen Khan is certainly not as bad as some of the reviews say and i think the series will get better and will make me laugh even more
