Britcoms and shows I like

I thought I’d make a list of Britcoms and other British series I like, with a short description.  Here you go!

Absolutely Fabulous – silly fun, two women who never grew past the 1960s

After You’ve Gone – is good, but not as good as My Family for dysfunctional family

‘Allo ‘Allo – a bit odd, set during WWII

Are you Being Served – the epitome of Britcom for me

As Time Goes By – My parents story, or pretty close. Judi Dench is awesome.

Ballykissangel – Irish town meets English priest. Hilarity ensues.

A Bit of Fry and Laurie – Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry. Nuff said.

Black Adder – Rowan Atkinson at his sarcastic best

Black Books – a horrible Irish man runs a book store, but hates EVERYONE. Think Basil Fawlty in a London bookstore.

Brother Cadfael – lovely historical mysteries with Derek Jacobi

The Celts – Documentary that made Enya’s music famous

Chef! – you thought Gordon Ramsay was bad?

Coupling – Like Friends, but funny and with more sex.

Doctor Who – No description needed

Doc Martin – a country doctor afraid of blood, and no social skill whatsoever

Father Ted – bumbling Irish priests on a small island.

Fawlty Towers – John Cleese. Nothing more needed.

French & Saunders – Vicar of Dibley meets AbFab

Good Neighbors – a young(ish) couple decide to live off the land – while living in the suburbs.

Hamish MacBeth – Dr. Rush from SGU is a cop in the highlands of Scotland. With an attitude.

Hotel Babylon – 5 Star hotel in London – the inside view

Horatio Horn blower – History on the High Seas

I, Claudius – Derek Jacobi again, fantastic series of ancient Rome.

Jeeves and Wooster – More Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry

Keeping up Appearances – Mrs. Bucket (pronounced boo-KAY!) wants to be seen as posh.

Little Britain – Silly, toilet humor for the very British. Narrated by Tom Baker

Lovejoy – Antique dealer/rogue

Last of the Summer Wine – A group of old men try to have fun in their autumn days

Michael Palin’s travel vids – He brings travel to life

Monarch of the Glen – My favorite series ever. Highlands of Scotland.

Monty Python’s Flying Circus – true silliness as only the Brits can do it.

Mr. Bean – Sort of a BritMime

My Family – Dysfunctional family – hilarious

One Foot in the Grave – Old man complains about forced retirement to anyone who will listen

Outlander – not a Britcom, but a show definitely worth watching! British WWII nurse goes back in time 200 years in Scotland

Outnumbered – a family with three children, too smart for their parents!

Red Dwarf – Space Britcom with human cats

Rosemary and Thyme – Two gardeners find lots of murderers.

Roar! – Celtic historical – sort of (Heath Ledger)

Rome – great rendition of Julius Caesar’s time (not British, but had to be included)

Sharpe’s series – fantastic series of Napoleonic wars (Sean Bean)

Shaun the Sheep – claymation, very funny

Sherlock Holmes – any version will do.

Slings and Arrows – OK, it’s Canadian, not British.  But great show about a Shakespearean group!

The I.T. Crowd – IT geeks vs. the world.

Thin Blue Line – More Rowan Atkinson – as a cop, this time.

Torchwood. – Chasing aliens in Cardiff

The Tudors. – Another great historical series (mostly)

Vicar of Dibley – hilarity from Dawn French as a female vicar in a very small town

Waiting for God – Fantastic! Sarcastic wit and silliness

Yes, Minister – amusing, not required, Britcom about the Prime Minister

The Young Ones – early Britcom silliness

There are others I have come across, others I haven’t seen, etc.

Don’t miss information on Celtic myth and history, as well as practical travel planning tips, and hidden places, in my travel books. And watch out for my upcoming historical fantasy novel, Legacy of Hunger!
