History

Most of the TV material was adapted from the radio version, but with more emphasis on recurring characters and catchphrases. As a result of its success, the first television series was repeated on the more mainstream channel BBC Two. Although reactions were mixed, many critics were enthusiastic, and the show was commissioned for another run. For the BBC radio station, see BBC Radio 2. ...


The second TV series, featuring several new characters, began on BBC Three October 19, 2004. Because of its popularity, the scheduled repeats were "promoted" to BBC One, starting December 3, 2004, which guaranteed higher ratings. However, the episodes were edited for their BBC One run, as the material was deemed too offensive for the BBC One audience. is the 292nd day of the year (293rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

A third series began on November 17, 2005 on BBC One, and ended six weeks later. After its transmission, it was unclear whether there would be another, as so many sketches were given dramatic twists and "wrapped up" — (see individual character articles). Lucas and Walliams were reportedly in talks for a fourth series with the BBC. Furthermore, they admitted in an interview they preferred to "kill off" certain characters in order to make way for new ones. As part of Red Nose Day 2007, BBC One broadcast sketches recorded at the live stage show version featuring the real Dennis Waterman as well as supermodel Kate Moss in sketches. 17 November is also the name of a Marxist group in Greece, coinciding with the anniversary of the Athens Polytechnic uprising. ...

Style and content

The format of the show is a compilation of short sketches featuring recurring characters, linked by narration from Tom Baker (most famous as the Fourth Doctor on Doctor Who). The voiceovers take a wry look at Britain, with comically absurd statements on the nation's character, such as, "Britain.... We've had running water for over 10 years, an underground tunnel linking us to Peru, and we invented the cat", or "Unlike other countries, Britain has people of two genders: women and men." For other persons named Tom Baker, see Tom Baker (disambiguation). ... The Fourth Doctor is the name given to the fourth incarnation of the Doctor seen on screen in the long-running BBC television science-fiction series Doctor Who. ... For other uses, see Doctor Who (disambiguation). ...


The style of Little Britain has evolved over the years. The radio series and first season on TV tended to consist of surreal concepts taken to logical extremes (such as a witch that employs contractors to build her gingerbread house, or the man leaving increasingly bizarre messages on his answering machine.) The sketches that caught the public's imagination, however, tended to be those which gave rise to memorable catchphrases and memes. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Witchcraft. ... A contractor is in a legal sense one who enters into a binding agreement to perform a certain service or provide a certain product in exchange for valuable consideration, usually money but sometimes other goods or services in a barter arrangement. ... Categories: Christmas food | Food and drink stubs ... ... A catch phrase is a phrase or expression that is popularized, usually through repeated use, by a real person or fictional character. ...

Main characters

As a sketch show, Little Britain features many characters, most are played by Lucas and Walliams with varying degrees of costume and makeup. The following is a summary of the most well known. The tone or style of this article or section may not be appropriate for Wikipedia. ...

  • Vicky Pollard: A rude, 18-year-old Bristolian chav with twelve children, ridiculing the stereotypical "chav" image of teenage parenthood. She is known for her rapid-fire speech, which often starts with "Yeah but, no but, Yeah but, no but, Yeah but..."
  • Daffyd Thomas: A self-proclaimed homosexual in the fictional village of Llandewi Breffi with homophobic tendencies who believes he is "the only gay in the village", constantly denying the presence of other gays though he is confronted with them in each sketch. Despite being heavily overweight, he is always dressed in tiny, skin tight outfits (such as a vinyl sailor suit).
  • Bubbles DeVere: An obese woman and sexual predator. Her scenes all take place in the spa where she has been staying for an undetermined (but obviously long) time. She believes herself to be irresistibly charming and gorgeous.
  • Desiree DeVere: Obese Anglo-African rival to Bubbles DeVere.
  • Lou Todd and Andy Pipkin: Andy feigns needing a wheelchair in order to have Lou, his kindly yet oblivious personal carer, do all his chores and work for him. Andy also delights in tormenting Lou with contradictory requests.
  • Marjorie Dawes: Leader of the "Fat Fighters" weight loss group. She enjoys taunting her group, despite being overweight herself. Her "policies" include trying to convince her members that eating dust is a good way to lose weight, and to cut food in half because "by eating half the calories, you can have twice as much".
  • Edward 'Emily' Howard: "Rubbish transvestite" who tries, unsuccessfully, to convince everyone that he is a "lady". Has a similar friend named Florence.
  • Sebastian Love: An exuberantly camp Prime Ministerial aide. He is smitten with his superior, and often acts like a childish school-girl.
  • Anne and Dr Lawrence: Part-time mental health patient and her caregiver. Anne is completely normal, except in the presence of Dr Lawrence. The doctor insists that she is showing great promise due to his treatment, though she continues to do things like pour coffee over his head and stroke strangers' faces.
  • Dennis Waterman: A small, out-of-work actor (a caricature of his real-life namesake), who always wants to "write the feem toon, sing the feem toon" (Series 1–2). The recent Little Britain Live stage show included a mock ad-lib sequence in which Lucas and Walliams question the logic of their caricature, which in fact bears little resemblance to Waterman. In a recent special recording of the sketch for Comic Relief 2007, Waterman himself appears on stage and confronts the two, forcing them to admit that in voice and appearance, there is no resemblance. He is forced to concede that he has often written and sung the "feem toon" of programmes in which he has appeared.
  • Mr Mann, Roy, and Margaret: Mr Mann always visits Roy's shop to buy an impossibly exact item, for which Roy has to ask Margaret (who is never seen, and eventually remarks that she's limbless).
  • Carol Beer: Listless bank worker (later a travel agent and then holiday rep) who processes customers' requests on her computer, usually responding with a flat and uninterested "Computer says no ...", and a discourteous cough at the customer. However, in the 2005 Christmas special, she is asked about a virtually impossible cruise at a giveaway price, to which she responds "Computer says yes!". The customer then coughs towards her. (Series 2–3, Little Britain Abroad)
  • Bernard Chumley: An aging failed actor that lives in public housing (The Sandy Toksvig House) with his invalid sister, who he admits was crippled in a car accident that was his fault ("of course, we can laugh about it now, but at the time it was terrible"). He steals her Meals on Wheels, and tries to have her taken away for burial before she is actually dead.
  • Harvey Pincher: A soon-to-be-married upper-class man, who shocks outsiders of his family by his unusual habit — he is still breast fed. (Series 2).
  • Ray McCooney: An irritating and bizarre Scottish hotel owner who speaks in arcane riddles, punctuating his speech with short but elaborate melodies (often TV themes) played on a flute-like instrument he calls a 'piccolillo'.
  • Jason & Gary: Gary lives in a lower-class family in a flat, but Jason has hallucinations that Gary's grandmother is "beautiful".
  • Mrs Emery: A friendly, elderly lady that seems to have urinating problems.

Criticism

The series, and in particular its second and third season, have been criticised for their perceived treatment of minority groups. For example, Johann Hari, writing in The Independent, stated: Johann Hari (born January 21, 1979) is a British journalist and writer. ... For other uses, see The Independent (disambiguation). ...

"Little Britain has been a vehicle for two rich kids to make themselves into multi-millionaires by mocking the weakest people in Britain. Their targets are almost invariably the easiest, cheapest groups to mock: the disabled, poor, elderly, gay or fat. In one fell swoop, they have demolished protections against mocking the weak that took decades to build up."[3]

Similarly, Fergus Sheppard, writing in The Scotsman wrote: The Scotsmans offices in Edinburgh The Scotsman is a Scottish national newspaper, published in Edinburgh. ...

"The latest series of the hit BBC comedy Little Britain may be hauling in record viewing figures, but it has also sparked a previously unthinkable chorus of criticism, with claims that the show has lost its way, trading early ingenuity for swelling amounts of toilet humour in the search for cheap laughs, and becoming increasingly offensive."[4]

The programme has become increasingly popular with children, despite being shown after the watershed; however, there has been criticism from teachers that the programme leads to copycat behaviour in the playground.[5] Watershed is a term used in the United Kingdom (as well as Canada) to describe a time in television schedules beyond which it is permissible to show television programmes which have adult content. It is known in the US as Safe Harbor. Adult content can be generally defined as having... The term copycat (also written as copy-cat or copy cat) refers to the tendency of humans to duplicate the behavior of others, as expressed in the saying, monkey see, monkey do. ...


Although the series' supporters have dismissed these attacks, the suggestions of unhelpful attitudes towards race are hard to shake off, since regular characters in series 3 included an obese black woman (played by Walliams, albeit that she is the enemy of an obese white woman), and an unattractive Thai bride (played by Lucas, though she is married to an equally unattractive white man). This is in contrast to the first TV series, which contained a sketch apparently aimed at racist attitudes: two men in blackface (as once seen in The Black and White Minstrel Show) are shown unable to find a room in a bed and breakfast. Counter-critics respond however that they believe Little Britain has only been carrying on the brand of non-politically correct humour that originated with Monty Python, Bernard Manning, Curry and Chips, and Benny Hill.[citation needed] This reproduction of a 1900 minstrel show poster, originally published by the Strobridge Litho Co. ...

Future of Little Britain

Screenshot of Little Britain Abroad.

Matt Lucas and David Walliams have recently signed a three-year deal with the BBC. The duo are currently planning a new show — one in which some of their best-known characters return, but it will be a "totally new and different series".[6] However, it was revealed that Little Britain would return for a fourth series on the British Comedy Awards 2006. It is unknown whether this is related in any way to the new show.

A two part Little Britain Christmas special entitled Little Britain Abroad, aired over the 2006 Christmas season. Part one aired on Christmas Day, followed by part two on 30 December. The special took the characters and put them into locations other than Britain. Themes included Vicky Pollard being caught drug-trafficking in Thailand, along with her equally repulsive mum (played by Dawn French); Ronnie Corbett being seduced by Bubbles DeVere in France; Carol Beer who has gone to lead a group tour in Spain; Lou and Andy becoming stranded on an island in the Atlantic Ocean while on their way to Walt Disney World; Marjorie Dawes of Fat Fighters going to Miami; and Peter Kay appearing in his caravan in Belgium as Dudley's brother, who had a Russian bride Julia Davis.[7] These Little Britain Abroad episodes have now been filmed in Australia, sometime in 2007[8]. is the 364th day of the year (365th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Lucas and Walliams announced that the British series was over for them.[9] Lucas and Walliams are expected to produce a new series for the BBC as per their holding deal. Lucas was quoted as saying he "likes the idea of starting over again".


American version

Walliams and Lucas are due to create an American version of Little Britain for HBO. Little Britain will follow the model of Da Ali G Show, a series and character created by the British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, which was later also created for American audiences for the network. Simon Fuller has been recruited to co-write the series with the duo, along with a team of American writers.[10] For other uses, see HBO (disambiguation). ... Da Ali G Show was the name of two related satirical TV series starring British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and featuring the character Ali G. The original (single season) series was made by Channel 4 in the UK, and the second (two season) series by Channel 4 in the UK... This article is about the British comedian. ... Simon Fuller (born May 17, 1960 in Hastings, England) is one of the most powerful men in entertainment in the world. ...


Lucas revealed that he and Walliams have been practicing with a vocal coach for their new U.S. series which will contain "old and new characters".[11] Ten new characters have been written. "They range from the nice to the really gruesome — and we’re having a ball inventing them", revealed Lucas.[12]


The six-part series will film in January 2008 and will air on HBO in 2008.[13] 2008 (MMVIII) will be a leap year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Israeli version

Starting in February 2007, Israel's Channel 2 began showing an Israeli version of the series, starring Tsiyyōn Brōkh, Asī Yisrā'elōf, and Shālōm Mikhā'elishvīllī, and narrated by veteran television and radio broadcaster Dān Kanār, called "הישראלים", ("ha-Yisre'elīm" meaning "The Israelis"). [6] Like the British version, The Israelis spoofs various characters in Israeli society and has spawned several catch-phrases. Also like the British version, however, the Israeli version has attracted criticism for alleged discrimination in its portrayal of minorities and the underprivileged.[14] It should be noted that Walliams and Lucas have nothing to do with ha-Yisre'elīm. Channel 2 (Israel) is an Israeli commercial television channel that started broadcasting in November 4, 1993 under the Second Israeli Broadcasting Authority. ...


Russian version

In 2006, Moscow-based national TV company "TNT" ("ТНТ") licensed the format of "Little Britain" to create their own similar showshow, "Наша Russia" ("Nasha Russia" meaning "Our Russia"). Two writers - Mikhail Galustyan and Sergey Svetlakov - completed two series of the show (about 20 episodes in total), which were well appreciated by the Russian audience. Some of their sketches can be viewed online on the official site.[15]. As with the Israeli version, Walliams and Lucas have nothing to do with this show.

Washington Irving : Little Britain (4245 words)
Little Britain may truly be called the heart's core of the city; the stronghold of true John Bullism.
The rival oracle of Little Britain is a substantial cheesemonger, who lives in a fragment of one of the old family mansions, and is as magnificently lodged as a round-bellied mite in the midst of one of his own Cheshires.
All Little Britain was in an uproar with the smacking of whips, the lashing of miserable horses, and the rattling and the jingling of hackney coaches.
Victorian London - Districts - Little Britain (4235 words)
He is a dapper little fellow, with bandy legs and pot belly, a red face, with a moist merry eye, and a little shock of gray hair behind.
The Lord Mayor is looked up to by the inhabitants of Little Britain as the greatest potentate upon earth; his gilt coach with six horses as the summit of human splendor; and his procession, with all the Sheriffs and Aldermen in his train, as the grandest of earthly pageants.
Thus is this little territory torn by factions and internal dissensions, like the great empire whose name it bears; and what will be the result would puzzle the apothecary himself, with all his talent at prognostics, to determine; though I apprehend that it will terminate in the total downfall of genuine John Bullism.
