Matt Lucas and David Walliams, the creators of this character-comedy sketch show, delight in all that is mad, bad, quirky and generally bonkers about the people and places of Britain.
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 Britains inner cities, while the narrator (Tom Baker) adds his insightful and eloquent comments for those less familiar with these fair Isles
Welcome to "Little Britain," the British countryside of the United Kingdom. From Britains cities to the highlands of Scotland, "Little Britain" is home to a numerous group of quirky characters. Among them are: teenage troublemaker Vicky Pollard; caregiver Lou Todd, who doesnt realise that Andy Pipkin, the lazy fat man he looks after who sits in a wheelchair, can actually walk; Sebastian Love, the gay assistant of the Prime Minister; Ray McCooney, eccentric manager of a Scottish hotel; Majorie Dawes, the cruel leader of the "Fat Fighters" who makes fun of fat men and women in her diet class; overweight woman Bubbles De Vere; former Welsh childrens TV presenter Des Kaye, who works in a DIY superstore; gay Welshman Daffyd Thomas, who claims he is "the only gay in the village"; and many more. Each week, we travel through Little Britain and visit each character as we are joined by the Narrator, who gives us his comments and helps explain the culture of Little Britain.
