A - Z of Britcoms

A-Z of my favourite Britcoms

January 24th is Global Belly Laugh Day so, in honour of the occasion, here is an A-Z of my favourite British sitcoms.

The Aliens

A is for... The Aliens

Aliens ('morks') crashed into the Irish Sea back in the 1970s. The UK gives them exactly the welcome you'd expect - herding them into a walled ghetto and employing border guards to man the checkpoints. The show follows one of the latter finding out that he is actually half-Mork...


B is for... Blackadder

They're all great, but Blackadder III is definitely my favourite, especially when Baldrick comes up with one of his cunning plans.


C is for... Cuckoo

The Vicar of Dibley

D is for... The Vicar of Dibley

For something that now seems so cosy and traditional, it's sobering to think that the Church of England had only ordained its first women vicars months before it aired.

The Brittas Empire

E is for... The Brittas Empire

Father Ted

F is for... Father Ted

One Foot In The Grave

G is for... One Foot In The Grave

When it comes to pessimistic cyncism, nobody comes close to beating Victor Meldrew.

Bless This House

H is for... Bless This House

The Inbetweeners

I is for... The Inbetweeners

The Royle Family

J is for... [Jim and] The Royle Family

Keeping Up Appearances

K is for... Keeping Up Appearances

The Thin Blue Line

L is for... The Thin Blue Line

Ben Elton at his family friendly best. Click HERE for all my favourite Inspector Grimm quotes.

George and Mildred

M is for... George and Mildred

Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights

N is for... Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights

On The Buses

O is for... On the Buses

My favourite. It's so awfully of its time but I love it anyway!


P is for... Porridge

The less said about the modern day sequel, the better.


Q is for... Quacks

Red Dwarf

R is for... Red Dwarf

Absolute classic about the last human and his hopeless travels through space... I counted down my top ten episodes HERE.

Steptoe and Son

S is for... Steptoe and Son


T is for... TLC

Upstart Crow

U is for... Upstart Crow

No British comedy list can ever have too much Ben Elton.


V is for... Vicious

What happens after the Happily Ever After? Decades of sniping at each other. :)

Jeeves and Wooster

W is for... Jeeves and Wooster

Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are just so perfectly cast.

Gavin and Stacey

X is for... Essex (and Barry!)

Yes, Minister

Y is for... Yes, Minister

And Yes, Prime Minister, of course!

Z is for... z*x$%! AKA, every other word of The Thick Of It
