Little Britain USA. Episode 2 of 6. Matt Lucas and David Walliams take their comic creations to the US. Vicky Pollard, thrown out of Disneyland, arrives at boot​. Little Britain, das ist Irrsinn! EU-Pflegekräfte sollen eine Gebühr zahlen, damit sie im britischen NHS arbeiten dürfen. Das falsche Signal in. Little Britain. Bis heute eine der erfolgreichsten und tabulosesten Comedyserien der letzten Jahre. Die Comedy von Matt Lucas und David Walliams ging u. a. in.

While these will start off with "nice" things, she innocently comes up with vulgar ones that are often sex-related for example, "I love you more than transsexual porn" , much to the horror of her mother.

In their final sketch they go over to a friend's house for sleepover. As they are parting, Ellie-Grace who has been warned by her mother not to come up with any vulgar love sentiments pressures her mother into sharing one more round of love sentiments, which she reluctantly complies with.

However, just as it looks fine when Ellie-Grace's sentiments turn out not to be vulgar , her mother accidentally comes up with one herself.

This then traumatizes Ellie-Grace and her friends, who are then comforted by her friends' mother. Champagne for everyone!

It'll last longer! She has a habit of taking her clothes off, primarily to obstruct any attempt to get her to pay off her tremendous debts and cost of living, but also because she believes she is exceptionally beautiful.

In Series 2, the owner of the spa, Mr. Hutton Walliams tries frequently to get her to pay for the increasing cost of her stay at the spa to no avail Bubbles is prepared to go to any length to avoid doing so, including hiding so long in a tanning bed that she burns her entire body the colour of charcoal.

It is also frequently implied she is some kind of debutante , despite being 43 years old and divorced.

In Little Britain Abroad , she travels to Monte Carlo to stay with Ronnie Corbett , whom she believes to be one of her oldest friends in spite of the fact he does not know her, and she later pays a visit to a Swiss boutique at a ski resort to borrow a dress for a dinner party, but ends up ruining the dress upon wearing it.

In the same sketch, in order to show off to the shop assistant, she pretends to be phoned by novelist Jilly Cooper.

In Little Britain USA , she is shown travelling on a cruise ship racking up huge debts in the casino revealing that she is also a gambling addict.

Each time she loses a bet, she gambles everything on the roulette wheel, including her earrings, her clothes and even her wig.

She later tries to seduce the captain of the cruise ship to talk him out of her paying gambling debts, but only to be kicked out. Later in her third and final appearance, she was put off the ship but swam back also revealing that she is a champion swimmer , and tries to seduce a rich man.

She also appeared in Little Britain Live. Appearances: Since Series 3 Catchphrase: "Baby" as opposed to Bubbles' "Dahlin" and usually pronounced "bebby", "babby" or "bubby".

Desiree pronounced "de-zee-ray" is the rival of Bubbles and the new wife of Bubbles' ex-husband, Roman. Desiree, like Bubbles, is an obese woman larger even than Bubbles who frequently appears naked, wears only a small silver dress and is bald though, like Bubbles, she wears a wig , but is a lot more spiteful than Bubbles.

Roman enjoys watching the two of them wrestling naked. He divorced Bubbles because she lost an amount of weight. She is believed to be former Miss Botswana and an ex-Olympic Showjumper.

On one occasion, when she bends over to search for her wig, Bubbles remarks, referring to Desiree's anus, "Oh, it's like the Black Hole of Calcutta!

He gets frustrated when Bubbles tries to interrupt his and Desiree's honeymoon. He appears to have some sort of a fetish for fat women as he enjoys seeing Bubbles and Desiree wrestle in the nude, and in one sketch, got an erection after seeing Bubbles naked getting a slap from Desiree on it due to a believed sex scandal.

Michael Dinner also known as The Posh Diner is a man who is always seen in a restaurant. In each of his sketches he is approached by a waiter and gruffly orders posh dishes, before ordering something basic or mass-market such as Um Bongo , Hubba Bubba or Monster Munch as the waiter walks away.

Michael also appeared on the Comic Relief episode and in the deleted scenes of the second series. Making one appearance in the U.

S version of the show, a couple are divorcing because of the wife's homosexuality. As they are packing her belongings into boxes, the husband discovers numerous books, toys and essentials that suggest her homosexuality that she kept hidden from him.

At the end of the sketch he accidentally uncovers a book of his entitled " Sir Ian McKellen 's book of men's bottoms," indicating that he is homosexual as well.

Appearances: Series 2 Catchphrase: "Stay where you are! Doug makes only one appearance in the entire series.

He was shown to be giving firm and very tough lectures at a drug rehabilitation centre, while kindly telling them that he will help them overcome their habits.

During the entire appearance, a lady in the rehab tries to leave, insisting she is at the wrong lecture, but he refuses her request each time.

He made several more appearances in the Deleted Scenes of Series 2, in which his mother appears at his lecture and indicates that his supposed drug addictions are all made up and he has never actually done hard drugs.

A more polite version of Doug appears in a deleted Peter Andre sketch from Series 1. Appearances: Since Series 3 Catchphrase: "Oh, 'ello dear!

Mrs Emery is a friendly old lady who is never one to back out of a nice long chat. Her sketches typically show her in some public place such as a library, supermarket or post office, and meeting someone with whom she is familiar or acquainted to there and then starts chatting to them.

While conversing, she then starts urinating uncontrollably, much to the shock of the person in question. She is oblivious to her constant urinating and always believes the mess she leaves behind is the result of a pipe leak or someone else's behaviour.

In her final sketch, a doctor, after examining her leg and seeing her uncontrollable urinating , asks her if she has anything else wrong with her, which she denies.

Her sketches attracted controversy soon after the launch of the third series when they were criticised by the UK incontinence charity, Incontact.

Eileen and Janet appear only in one episode in Series 1. In their sketch, Eileen Lucas is consoling her sister, Janet Walliams , who has recently lost her husband, Ivar.

Throughout the sketch, a mention of certain and sometimes very simple things, such as a visit to the shops, reminds Janet of Ivar and makes her start sobbing, while Eileen patiently consoles her.

At the end of the sketch, she firmly reminds her sister that they had decided not to talk about Ivar's death. They originally appeared in the radio show.

Linda is a university counsellor who always has a student in her office asking for something, usually course-related.

Linda calls a man named Martin unseen and unheard to the audience to grant the request and is asked to describe the student in question.

While she often begins with complimentary or basic descriptions such as the colour of the hair or skin, good personalities or what they're wearing , she will then use descriptions that mock the student's culture or appearance or anything about them outstanding, such as a mole on their chin or their lack of hair, and using an insulting epithet to describe them, such as "big fat lesbian ," "ching-chong Chinaman ", "Ali Bongo", "Fatty Fatty Boom Boom", "the Oompa Loompa ", " Magnum, P.

Her office is decorated with counter-cultural and Communist paraphernalia a bust of Lenin and several Soviet flags.

In the last episode of Series 3, all of the students she had insulted in Series 2 and 3 came to tell her they wanted to place a formal complaint about her, but when she called Martin to sort it out, she referred to them as "the whole cast of Fraggle Rock " The tables were turned on her in a Little Britain Abroad deleted scene when her Australian counterpart, Germain, remarked that she had greying hair, smelt a bit musky, needed a shave and was on the wrong side of menopause "The dried up old witch" , sending Linda out in tears.

Thank you. He is always issuing statements to the press regarding embarrassing situations in which he has apparently been caught. His statements are written and delivered in an ineffective attempt to make his misadventures sound innocent and justifiable, using phrases such as "on entering the room, my clothes accidentally fell off" or "I followed the gentlemen into the toilet cubicle to discuss foreign policy", and to cover up his apparent homosexual urges, since all of his statements refer to encounters with other men.

He always makes his statements outside his country manor, with his wife and children present, and will proceed to kiss his wife after finishing his statements.

Although initially supportive, his wife grows irritable as he issues more and more statements, and she eventually walks away without even giving him a chance to kiss her.

Fry is somewhat similar to the Viz character Baxter Basics. Gary and Jason are two working-class friends who always visit Gary's grandmother, on whom Jason has a crush.

Jason always tries to play on to Gary's grandmother, be it by performing the Heimlich maneuver on her or seeing her to the bathroom or wiping her spillings and sucking her toes, the latter of which horrifies Gary to the point of ordering him out of her house.

When Jason later visited Gary's grandmother, he was aroused to see her kissing her sister, which was further enhanced by her offering a sandwich , which he interpreted as the sex position.

This sketch was originally planned for the TV series, but Matt and David have censored themselves by not showing it. Help me out here you boring old cow.

George and Sandra are a middle-aged English couple celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in the United States.

However, their marriage has deteriorated to the point that they often remain in an awkward silence which George tries to break in the best tone he can give, but when this doesn't work, he comments on how he dislikes her.

In their second sketch he compares their current relationship to that of a pair of primates in a zoo which they visit on a daytrip. Sandra remains motionless and completely silent, uttering only one word throughout the entire series "ornithophobic" which she used to remind George of her fear of birds.

In the last of their sketches, they return to the United Kingdom and, when George leaves for their aeroplane, Sandra shows no sign of wanting to follow.

Bing Gordyn is the eighth and second to last man to walk on the Moon. As he has a moustache, he likes to call himself as "the first man with a moustache to walk on the moon".

He is exceedingly bitter about the fact that he is largely unknown to the general public, as opposed to Neil Armstrong.

In his first appearance, he is speaking to a Boy Scout troop about the moon, but when they show a lack of interest and the questions turn to other astronauts like Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin , he lashes out at the boys, asking them if they'd ever done anything important like walk or in the case of one wheelchair-using boy, roll on the moon.

In his second sketch, it is shown that he arranges plumbers and other handymen to his house to try and impress them about his exploits, but always fails to do so.

In his final sketch, he pulls out a shotgun on a university student writing an essay on the theory of the faked moon landings and, for once, mentions the negative details of his trip "It was real cold, the food was horrible , I threw up in my helmet!

He is similar to the character Denver Mills as they both are Walliams characters and both hold major achievements that nobody else cares about.

In real life, twelve men walked on the Moon. The eighth was the late James Irwin , the second to last was Harrison Schmitt.

Edward Grant is a schoolteacher married to his ex-pupil Samantha. Their marriage had not gone down at all well with Samantha's parents in the early days, but they now claim that they share an ordinary marriage just like any other.

However, Edward behaves as though Samantha were still a school pupil , saying things such as "the bell is a signal for me, not for you" upon the doorbell ringing and "you copied Nigella Lawson's work!

In their final sketch, Edward tells Samantha that he will be out the next day and that another teacher will be covering for him, much to her shock.

That's what I am, a lady! I do lady things! Emily, whose real name is Eddie Howard, is an awkward and very unconvincing transvestite. She has only ever been acknowledged as a woman once in the entire series the man in question then caught her in the male bathroom of the pub he was at.

Rather than trying to be like a modern woman, Emily wears outdated, Victorian frocks and her behaviour follows that of the out-dated Victorian stereotype, including talking in an exaggeratedly high-pitched voice, an equally high-pitched nervous laugh, using the word "lady" as an adjective for almost everything and feigning a lack of strength, which only makes her even less convincing.

Additionally, she is in the habit of using French words in normal conversation. Most sketches involving Emily revolve around the performing of stereotypically male behaviour such as fixing a car or playing football in spite of her appearance, or exaggerated attempts to persuade others that she is a woman and to allow her to perform exclusively female behaviour e.

From the second series onwards, Emily has best friend Florence as a companion and is teaching her how to pretend to be like a lady.

In her first sketch, she attempts to become a model for an art class, but is forced to pose with no clothes on, thus being forced to admit that she is not a lady.

And she also meets Sting where she sings and even kisses him. In her third sketch, she is arrested and, due to the seriousness of the situation, Eddie Howard is forced to admit that he's a male, much to his frustration.

It is also here that we learn that Eddie has a wife and three kids, one of which is named Tommy. In her final sketch, she blind dates another man, who accidentally drives off with her wig.

Even though Emily is one of the series primary characters, neither Emily nor Florence appeared in Little Britain Abroad. Emily later appears in a sketch for Sport Relief where she trained Peter Crouch on how to be a lady.

At the end of each show in Series 1, they try to set a world record , but end up not meeting the requirements or not having essential things.

For example, they want to set the record for the world's tallest man, but then realise that wearing an excessively tall top hat doesn't count, or that they want to set the record for the largest baked bean bath, but then realise they need more than one tin of baked beans to fill the bath.

On one occasion, they lost their subject when trying to break the record for the world's smallest ant.

Each attempt usually takes place in an empty auditorium, showing that they are largely unpopular record attempts. The next sketch shows that they were making the world's largest meat pie, but didn't get an oven big enough to bake it.

Their last sketch was the record for the most people in a mini but there's only 4 people sitting in the car. Jane and Rod have a daughter who is in a coma, but it is seen that they use their motionless child as a decoy in order to get celebrities to meet them.

David Soul visits them in the first skit, but they only appear to be interested in him and not their child. In the next skit Les McKeown visits them to sing them some of his songs which they say their child wants to hear despite being motionless.

They also appear in a Series 1 deleted scene, going through a list of celebrities due to visit them. Catchphrase: "Wicky Woo! He is in denial and hasn't come to terms with the fact he is no longer on TV.

He is often seen pestering the other members of staff with his puppet called Croc O'Dile and his frequent sayings of "wicky woo". The Series 1 DVD contains a deleted scene showing Des visiting a children's hospital and accidentally unplugging a patient's life support machine while trying to play some cheerful music on a tape recorder.

He appears on the radio series, and even makes it into the best of Little Britain Radio show 2-disc set. According to the Radio series, he was sacked from his "Fun Bus" show because of gross indecency saying "Are you telling me you've never had a wank in the toilet?

One of the new employees at DIY universe where Des was working at the time claims that he and his sister watched the show during its run and revealed that a girl lost an eye on the show.

Des Kaye also made an appearance on the live show, making him one of only 2 characters to have had their last appearance on the show in series 1, the other being Ray McCooney.

The act involved Des driving around in what is presumably a miniature fun bus and angrily throwing lollipops at the audience. He then proceeds to play a game called "Hide the Sausage", which involves him taking 2 men from the audience at random, asking them to hide a large sausage on a random body part and then molest the contestant who he thinks has the sausage until a loud siren goes off.

In the Australian tour, Walliams received a letter of complaint for this strong scene, he then claimed he would respond with an apology.

Reverend Jesse King is a Black American preacher on a foreign exchange with the vicar of a small village church in Britain.

He states that he is "from the ghetto"; loudly encourages the congregation to "fight the power"; and attempts to cure a man's cough using faith healing and when this fails, he gives the man some cough sweets instead.

Catchphrase : "Have you met Anne, by the way? Dr Lawrence is the Doctor in charge of Anne's progress. He rarely makes a fuss about Anne's childish behaviour and is only seen being angry at her once, when she was going to chuck his children's guinea pig out the window, which she did moments later.

Leonard is a man who works in a retirement home. He goes to great lengths to ensure comfort for certain inhabitants, mainly himself.

Officer Lindsay appears only once in Series 1. He is a retired police officer in the town of Scoffage, who gives driving lessons.

After persuading his student to drive at law-breaking speeds, he promptly pulls the car over, goes to the driver's window and interrogates the student for speeding as if he were still a policeman.

Lindsay drives a brown Austin Allegro on which he has crudely painted the word 'Police', he also wears a policeman's uniform, claiming all his other clothes were in the wash.

Liz and Clive are a middle-aged couple who spend a lot of time eating in their local Chinese restaurant.

Throughout these sketches, Liz loudly and endlessly claims that she had been a bridesmaid at Mollie Sugden 's wedding, which angers and annoys Clive, especially when Liz makes him listen to her rather than talk to an old classmate of Paul McCartney 's the man is played by Ted Robbins , McCartney's real-life cousin.

In the final sketch involving these characters, Liz is still endlessly ranting about being Sugden's bridesmaid when Sugden comes to the restaurant, causing Liz to suddenly get agitated and try to leave.

Clive then approaches Sugden with Liz trying almost physically to stop him and she denies any knowledge of Liz, as her friend Helen had been her only bridesmaid.

At this point, Liz suddenly stabs and kills her with a knife, revealing that she had been fabricating her claims of being Sugden's bridesmaid.

Catchphrase: "Whateva! Aide to the Prime Minister , Sebastian holds a badly-concealed homosexual crush on his boss. Wildly jealous of anyone who takes the attention of the PM, Sebastian does everything in his power to bring the attention back to himself.

He often "accidentally" finds himself in sexually suggestive positions with his boss, who is usually very patient with and largely oblivious to or tacitly accepting of his advances.

He is also very defensive of his boss when he comes under fire from the press or general public for instance, when some people present a petition saying that they want the PM to resign, he tears it up and throws it in their faces without showing it to anyone.

In the finale of Series 2, he tries to kiss the PM but is at first unsuccessful and weeps. When questioned if he has a crush on his boss, he denies it, then kisses his boss.

He believes that his feelings for the PM are mutual, as he occasionally seduces other men to make the PM jealous. Catchphrase: Andy: "I want that one Lou Todd is Andy Pipkin's caregiver but is often taken advantage of by Andy in various ways, although deep down Andy loves Lou.

These include Andy's demanding things then rejecting them when they are done for him or when they are given to him , and Andy's ability to walk and perform complex physical activities while out of his wheelchair while Lou is not looking.

Andy is often dismissive and unkind to other characters, and kills Lou's replacement by pushing her off a cliff when she becomes too strict for him.

The pair are the longest serving members of the cast of characters having appeared in every episode except the TV pilot and the radio series. Mr Mann is a customer who shops in a store which varies in the merchandise it sells from episode to episode run by Roy.

He will usually ask for ridiculously specific items in the shop such as "a painting of a disappointed horse " in Series 3 Episode 2.

Roy would then call to his unseen wife, Margaret in the back room for assistance. Mr Mann appeared in only one episode in the first series, but was a regular character in the second and third series.

He is typically dressed in a grey raincoat, dark striped tie and black trousers. These sketches are some of the more traditional in the series, relying upon word play and surrealism.

Early versions of the sketch feature Roy being unable to provide Mr Mann with his request due to it being too specific, and attempting to provide him with a substitute, which he may refuse for a trivial reason which is important to him.

In later sketches, Roy became accustomed to his requests and was sometimes able to provide them. Mr Mann himself does not have any catchphrase while Roy and Margaret do and often delivers comedic content by making ludicrous suggestions to resolve a problem such as asking whether a long-dead writer would be prepared to re-write his book and cut out all the "Os" to make the book shorter.

In Little Britain Abroad , he visits a shop in Morocco with a Moroccan counterpart of Roy and asks for Pirate Memory Games, which was the first thing he ever asked for at Roy's shop in the British version.

In one episode, he asks for "a record of James Last playing Nelly Furtado 's hits on a banjo with a picture on the cover of James with his hands open showing stigmata " and Roy has the exact record he asked for.

In another episode, Mr Mann asks for a book and is being very specific about it, then asks if he's being too specific and Roy tells him that he is.

He then asks "have you got any books? Appearances: Margaret is always off-screen, but she has been included since Series 1 Catchphrase: See Roy below.

Margaret and her husband, Roy, own a shop frequented by Mr Mann. She is unseen throughout all the series and helps Roy when he calls to her from behind the counter.

She usually takes a long time to reply whenever Roy calls out to her. One episode reveals that she is unseen because she has no arms or legs.

Appearances: Little Britain USA Mark and Tom are stereotypical American bodybuilders with enormous muscles, tiny penises and a tendency to boast to each other about their most recent workouts and sexual encounters.

Despite talking about being with other women, they are shown to have homoerotic tendencies toward each other and often frolic about naked to the eyes of everyone in the locker rooms which gives them erections at one point.

They never mention their names onscreen making it hard to find out which is which, and in the last of their sketches they have had operations which gives the one played by Lucas a long tube of a penis and the one played by Walliams a woman's genitalia.

Dame Sally Markham is a wealthy, famous romantic novelist, whose preferred method of writing involves dictating her novel to her secretary Miss Grace, played by David Walliams to type out, while lying on her sofa with her pet bichon frise and a box of chocolates.

This is a reference to the novelist Dame Barbara Cartland , whose preferred writing method was dictation in similar circumstances.

Unlike Cartland's novels, however, Dame Sally's stories typically fall well short of the required length, and she will use drastic and often illegal methods in an effort to lengthen them, such as having the characters over-extend their interjections such as "Yahoooooooooooo" , integrating excerpts from the radio, plagiarizing extracts from Lady Chatterley's Lover , or having Miss Grace type the entire Bible into her novel.

In one instance, when she tried to lengthen it using her own imagination, she barely got past 76 pages and could not think of anything else to write, so she decided to pause with it and start a new one, which consisted only of title The Lady in Mauve , Chapter One and 'The End'.

As well as having bizarre ways of lengthening her books, Dame Sally also has some rather peculiar topiary designs outside her house, such as a hand pulling the middle finger, a dog performing an act of anal intercourse on another dog, a man picking his nose, a penis and some breasts.

April and Neville are two workers for Saint Tom Ambulance, who, in their first appearance, are shown to go into an opera house to help a man who's having a stroke.

April always offers the victims various candy mints which replace the required medical paraphernalia in her bag.

In one clip April gets Neville dismissed, by shifting the blame of having the mints to him. At the start of the final radio episode April met a fellow volunteer named Roy who used cigarettes.

The two of them argued over each other's methods until they agreed on menthols when a woman collapsed. She and her grandson Connor often chat about uneasy issues concerning what Connor has heard of or been involved in, such as drug testing, racism and homosexuality.

Mildred then reveals certain strange details of her past, such as drug habits or homosexuality or incidents involving racism.

When talking about drugs, she speaks to Connor as if he should've known better, but defends herself when mentioning her own experiences, claiming that "we didn't know any different.

In their final sketch, Connor admits to being homosexual, only to be called a "faggot" by Mildred.

Scottish owner of a hotel who speaks and acts like an Elizabethan fantasy character, even though he is often seen speaking and behaving perfectly normally.

He answers questions from customers in a diffident manner using riddles, "spells", and a intentionally badly dubbed flute, which he refers to as a ' piccalillo '.

He also refers strangely to ordinary objects, such as the radio, which he calls the "talking noisy box". His eccentric behaviour often annoys and confuses his guests.

However, in his final appearance, two officers from the Inland Revenue service used it against him, tricking Ray into making overdue tax payments.

His hotel is opposite IKEA. In the pilot episode, this character's name was "Roy" and his appearance was that of a chef at the "Aberdoone Stook Hoose" Aberdeen Steak House.

He also played a metal flute rather than his "Piccalillo". It is said in the series 2 script book that since series 2, Ray has been continually wandering around asking people why he isn't in the second or third series.

The name is a tribute to farce writer Ray Cooney. Andy was badly treated by Mrs Mead, and had to clean the house which in Mrs Mead's opinion, was a "pig sty".

She hit him thrice, to prove he couldn't feel anything in his legs. Behind her back he yelled in pain. She also made him eat some disgusting stew, and as an alternative to a choc ice , he had to eat a pear for pudding.

Mrs Mead forbade Andy from watching "Des and Mel". For their own "entertainment", she sang an off key religious tune. Mrs Mead then took Andy to a cliff, where he had to wheel himself.

She told him that she thought Lou had been too soft with him, and told him that he had to do cooking and cleaning, no more TV or chocolate and crisps.

When she was telling him he needed a job, Andy was tired of her unfair treatment, and killed Mrs Mead by pushing her off the cliff.

Denver Mills is a former silver medallist gold medallist in the radio drama in the metres at the Los Angeles Olympics , who now acts as a guest speaker at various events.

His speeches are always politically or factually incorrect, confusing and often offensive to the audience, such as his speech at a police dinner " Matt Lucas and David Walliams play all the main characters in the show.

This makes a total of 25 episodes to date. There has also been the Little Britain Live show. The programme, particularly the second and third series, has been criticised for its treatment of women and minority groups and 'punch-down' comedic style.

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 programme had lost its way, trading early ingenuity for swelling amounts of toilet humour in the search for cheap laughs, and becoming increasingly offensive.

Activist Owen Jones of The Guardian argues in his book Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class that Little Britain helped to perpetuate unkind stereotypes about working-class people: exacerbated by the fact that both Walliams and Lucas attended private schools.

The series became increasingly popular with children, despite being shown after the watershed. There was also criticism from teachers that the programme led to inappropriate copycat behaviour in the playground.

Speaking in October , Lucas explained that if he were to re-make Little Britain he would avoid making jokes about transvestites and would not play the role of a black character.

Lucas went on to say that "Basically, I wouldn't make that show now. It would upset people. We made a more cruel kind of comedy than I'd do now Society has moved on a lot since then and my own views have evolved".

Lucas, however, defended the decisions that were taken at the time, and explained that he and co-star Walliams deliberately sought to play a very diverse group of people.

This version was released as a charity single for Comic Relief on 19 March It featured a variety of characters in mini-games and received very negative reviews.

Appearances: Since Series 3 Catchphrase: "Baby" as opposed to Bubbles' "Dahlin" and usually pronounced "bebby", "babby" or "bubby".

Desiree pronounced "de-zee-ray" is the rival of Bubbles and the new wife of Bubbles' ex-husband, Roman. Desiree, like Bubbles, is an obese woman larger even than Bubbles who frequently appears naked, wears only a small silver dress and is bald though, like Bubbles, she wears a wig , but is a lot more spiteful than Bubbles.

Roman enjoys watching the two of them wrestling naked. He divorced Bubbles because she lost an amount of weight. She is believed to be former Miss Botswana and an ex-Olympic Showjumper.

On one occasion, when she bends over to search for her wig, Bubbles remarks, referring to Desiree's anus, "Oh, it's like the Black Hole of Calcutta!

He gets frustrated when Bubbles tries to interrupt his and Desiree's honeymoon. He appears to have some sort of a fetish for fat women as he enjoys seeing Bubbles and Desiree wrestle in the nude, and in one sketch, got an erection after seeing Bubbles naked getting a slap from Desiree on it due to a believed sex scandal.

Michael Dinner also known as The Posh Diner is a man who is always seen in a restaurant. In each of his sketches he is approached by a waiter and gruffly orders posh dishes, before ordering something basic or mass-market such as Um Bongo , Hubba Bubba or Monster Munch as the waiter walks away.

Michael also appeared on the Comic Relief episode and in the deleted scenes of the second series. Making one appearance in the U. S version of the show, a couple are divorcing because of the wife's homosexuality.

As they are packing her belongings into boxes, the husband discovers numerous books, toys and essentials that suggest her homosexuality that she kept hidden from him.

At the end of the sketch he accidentally uncovers a book of his entitled " Sir Ian McKellen 's book of men's bottoms," indicating that he is homosexual as well.

Appearances: Series 2 Catchphrase: "Stay where you are! Doug makes only one appearance in the entire series. He was shown to be giving firm and very tough lectures at a drug rehabilitation centre, while kindly telling them that he will help them overcome their habits.

During the entire appearance, a lady in the rehab tries to leave, insisting she is at the wrong lecture, but he refuses her request each time.

He made several more appearances in the Deleted Scenes of Series 2, in which his mother appears at his lecture and indicates that his supposed drug addictions are all made up and he has never actually done hard drugs.

A more polite version of Doug appears in a deleted Peter Andre sketch from Series 1. Appearances: Since Series 3 Catchphrase: "Oh, 'ello dear!

Mrs Emery is a friendly old lady who is never one to back out of a nice long chat. Her sketches typically show her in some public place such as a library, supermarket or post office, and meeting someone with whom she is familiar or acquainted to there and then starts chatting to them.

While conversing, she then starts urinating uncontrollably, much to the shock of the person in question. She is oblivious to her constant urinating and always believes the mess she leaves behind is the result of a pipe leak or someone else's behaviour.

In her final sketch, a doctor, after examining her leg and seeing her uncontrollable urinating , asks her if she has anything else wrong with her, which she denies.

Her sketches attracted controversy soon after the launch of the third series when they were criticised by the UK incontinence charity, Incontact.

Eileen and Janet appear only in one episode in Series 1. In their sketch, Eileen Lucas is consoling her sister, Janet Walliams , who has recently lost her husband, Ivar.

Throughout the sketch, a mention of certain and sometimes very simple things, such as a visit to the shops, reminds Janet of Ivar and makes her start sobbing, while Eileen patiently consoles her.

At the end of the sketch, she firmly reminds her sister that they had decided not to talk about Ivar's death. They originally appeared in the radio show.

Linda is a university counsellor who always has a student in her office asking for something, usually course-related. Linda calls a man named Martin unseen and unheard to the audience to grant the request and is asked to describe the student in question.

While she often begins with complimentary or basic descriptions such as the colour of the hair or skin, good personalities or what they're wearing , she will then use descriptions that mock the student's culture or appearance or anything about them outstanding, such as a mole on their chin or their lack of hair, and using an insulting epithet to describe them, such as "big fat lesbian ," "ching-chong Chinaman ", "Ali Bongo", "Fatty Fatty Boom Boom", "the Oompa Loompa ", " Magnum, P.

Her office is decorated with counter-cultural and Communist paraphernalia a bust of Lenin and several Soviet flags. In the last episode of Series 3, all of the students she had insulted in Series 2 and 3 came to tell her they wanted to place a formal complaint about her, but when she called Martin to sort it out, she referred to them as "the whole cast of Fraggle Rock " The tables were turned on her in a Little Britain Abroad deleted scene when her Australian counterpart, Germain, remarked that she had greying hair, smelt a bit musky, needed a shave and was on the wrong side of menopause "The dried up old witch" , sending Linda out in tears.

Thank you. He is always issuing statements to the press regarding embarrassing situations in which he has apparently been caught.

His statements are written and delivered in an ineffective attempt to make his misadventures sound innocent and justifiable, using phrases such as "on entering the room, my clothes accidentally fell off" or "I followed the gentlemen into the toilet cubicle to discuss foreign policy", and to cover up his apparent homosexual urges, since all of his statements refer to encounters with other men.

He always makes his statements outside his country manor, with his wife and children present, and will proceed to kiss his wife after finishing his statements.

Although initially supportive, his wife grows irritable as he issues more and more statements, and she eventually walks away without even giving him a chance to kiss her.

Fry is somewhat similar to the Viz character Baxter Basics. Gary and Jason are two working-class friends who always visit Gary's grandmother, on whom Jason has a crush.

Jason always tries to play on to Gary's grandmother, be it by performing the Heimlich maneuver on her or seeing her to the bathroom or wiping her spillings and sucking her toes, the latter of which horrifies Gary to the point of ordering him out of her house.

When Jason later visited Gary's grandmother, he was aroused to see her kissing her sister, which was further enhanced by her offering a sandwich , which he interpreted as the sex position.

This sketch was originally planned for the TV series, but Matt and David have censored themselves by not showing it.

Help me out here you boring old cow. George and Sandra are a middle-aged English couple celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in the United States.

However, their marriage has deteriorated to the point that they often remain in an awkward silence which George tries to break in the best tone he can give, but when this doesn't work, he comments on how he dislikes her.

In their second sketch he compares their current relationship to that of a pair of primates in a zoo which they visit on a daytrip.

Sandra remains motionless and completely silent, uttering only one word throughout the entire series "ornithophobic" which she used to remind George of her fear of birds.

In the last of their sketches, they return to the United Kingdom and, when George leaves for their aeroplane, Sandra shows no sign of wanting to follow.

Bing Gordyn is the eighth and second to last man to walk on the Moon. As he has a moustache, he likes to call himself as "the first man with a moustache to walk on the moon".

He is exceedingly bitter about the fact that he is largely unknown to the general public, as opposed to Neil Armstrong. In his first appearance, he is speaking to a Boy Scout troop about the moon, but when they show a lack of interest and the questions turn to other astronauts like Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin , he lashes out at the boys, asking them if they'd ever done anything important like walk or in the case of one wheelchair-using boy, roll on the moon.

In his second sketch, it is shown that he arranges plumbers and other handymen to his house to try and impress them about his exploits, but always fails to do so.

In his final sketch, he pulls out a shotgun on a university student writing an essay on the theory of the faked moon landings and, for once, mentions the negative details of his trip "It was real cold, the food was horrible , I threw up in my helmet!

He is similar to the character Denver Mills as they both are Walliams characters and both hold major achievements that nobody else cares about.

In real life, twelve men walked on the Moon. The eighth was the late James Irwin , the second to last was Harrison Schmitt.

Edward Grant is a schoolteacher married to his ex-pupil Samantha. Their marriage had not gone down at all well with Samantha's parents in the early days, but they now claim that they share an ordinary marriage just like any other.

However, Edward behaves as though Samantha were still a school pupil , saying things such as "the bell is a signal for me, not for you" upon the doorbell ringing and "you copied Nigella Lawson's work!

In their final sketch, Edward tells Samantha that he will be out the next day and that another teacher will be covering for him, much to her shock.

That's what I am, a lady! I do lady things! Emily, whose real name is Eddie Howard, is an awkward and very unconvincing transvestite.

She has only ever been acknowledged as a woman once in the entire series the man in question then caught her in the male bathroom of the pub he was at.

Rather than trying to be like a modern woman, Emily wears outdated, Victorian frocks and her behaviour follows that of the out-dated Victorian stereotype, including talking in an exaggeratedly high-pitched voice, an equally high-pitched nervous laugh, using the word "lady" as an adjective for almost everything and feigning a lack of strength, which only makes her even less convincing.

Additionally, she is in the habit of using French words in normal conversation. Most sketches involving Emily revolve around the performing of stereotypically male behaviour such as fixing a car or playing football in spite of her appearance, or exaggerated attempts to persuade others that she is a woman and to allow her to perform exclusively female behaviour e.

From the second series onwards, Emily has best friend Florence as a companion and is teaching her how to pretend to be like a lady.

In her first sketch, she attempts to become a model for an art class, but is forced to pose with no clothes on, thus being forced to admit that she is not a lady.

And she also meets Sting where she sings and even kisses him. In her third sketch, she is arrested and, due to the seriousness of the situation, Eddie Howard is forced to admit that he's a male, much to his frustration.

It is also here that we learn that Eddie has a wife and three kids, one of which is named Tommy. In her final sketch, she blind dates another man, who accidentally drives off with her wig.

Even though Emily is one of the series primary characters, neither Emily nor Florence appeared in Little Britain Abroad.

Emily later appears in a sketch for Sport Relief where she trained Peter Crouch on how to be a lady. At the end of each show in Series 1, they try to set a world record , but end up not meeting the requirements or not having essential things.

For example, they want to set the record for the world's tallest man, but then realise that wearing an excessively tall top hat doesn't count, or that they want to set the record for the largest baked bean bath, but then realise they need more than one tin of baked beans to fill the bath.

On one occasion, they lost their subject when trying to break the record for the world's smallest ant. Each attempt usually takes place in an empty auditorium, showing that they are largely unpopular record attempts.

The next sketch shows that they were making the world's largest meat pie, but didn't get an oven big enough to bake it.

Their last sketch was the record for the most people in a mini but there's only 4 people sitting in the car.

Jane and Rod have a daughter who is in a coma, but it is seen that they use their motionless child as a decoy in order to get celebrities to meet them.

David Soul visits them in the first skit, but they only appear to be interested in him and not their child. In the next skit Les McKeown visits them to sing them some of his songs which they say their child wants to hear despite being motionless.

They also appear in a Series 1 deleted scene, going through a list of celebrities due to visit them. Catchphrase: "Wicky Woo!

He is in denial and hasn't come to terms with the fact he is no longer on TV. He is often seen pestering the other members of staff with his puppet called Croc O'Dile and his frequent sayings of "wicky woo".

The Series 1 DVD contains a deleted scene showing Des visiting a children's hospital and accidentally unplugging a patient's life support machine while trying to play some cheerful music on a tape recorder.

He appears on the radio series, and even makes it into the best of Little Britain Radio show 2-disc set. According to the Radio series, he was sacked from his "Fun Bus" show because of gross indecency saying "Are you telling me you've never had a wank in the toilet?

One of the new employees at DIY universe where Des was working at the time claims that he and his sister watched the show during its run and revealed that a girl lost an eye on the show.

Des Kaye also made an appearance on the live show, making him one of only 2 characters to have had their last appearance on the show in series 1, the other being Ray McCooney.

The act involved Des driving around in what is presumably a miniature fun bus and angrily throwing lollipops at the audience.

He then proceeds to play a game called "Hide the Sausage", which involves him taking 2 men from the audience at random, asking them to hide a large sausage on a random body part and then molest the contestant who he thinks has the sausage until a loud siren goes off.

In the Australian tour, Walliams received a letter of complaint for this strong scene, he then claimed he would respond with an apology.

Reverend Jesse King is a Black American preacher on a foreign exchange with the vicar of a small village church in Britain.

He states that he is "from the ghetto"; loudly encourages the congregation to "fight the power"; and attempts to cure a man's cough using faith healing and when this fails, he gives the man some cough sweets instead.

Catchphrase : "Have you met Anne, by the way? Dr Lawrence is the Doctor in charge of Anne's progress. He rarely makes a fuss about Anne's childish behaviour and is only seen being angry at her once, when she was going to chuck his children's guinea pig out the window, which she did moments later.

Leonard is a man who works in a retirement home. He goes to great lengths to ensure comfort for certain inhabitants, mainly himself.

Officer Lindsay appears only once in Series 1. He is a retired police officer in the town of Scoffage, who gives driving lessons.

After persuading his student to drive at law-breaking speeds, he promptly pulls the car over, goes to the driver's window and interrogates the student for speeding as if he were still a policeman.

Lindsay drives a brown Austin Allegro on which he has crudely painted the word 'Police', he also wears a policeman's uniform, claiming all his other clothes were in the wash.

Liz and Clive are a middle-aged couple who spend a lot of time eating in their local Chinese restaurant.

Throughout these sketches, Liz loudly and endlessly claims that she had been a bridesmaid at Mollie Sugden 's wedding, which angers and annoys Clive, especially when Liz makes him listen to her rather than talk to an old classmate of Paul McCartney 's the man is played by Ted Robbins , McCartney's real-life cousin.

In the final sketch involving these characters, Liz is still endlessly ranting about being Sugden's bridesmaid when Sugden comes to the restaurant, causing Liz to suddenly get agitated and try to leave.

Clive then approaches Sugden with Liz trying almost physically to stop him and she denies any knowledge of Liz, as her friend Helen had been her only bridesmaid.

At this point, Liz suddenly stabs and kills her with a knife, revealing that she had been fabricating her claims of being Sugden's bridesmaid.

Catchphrase: "Whateva! Aide to the Prime Minister , Sebastian holds a badly-concealed homosexual crush on his boss. Wildly jealous of anyone who takes the attention of the PM, Sebastian does everything in his power to bring the attention back to himself.

He often "accidentally" finds himself in sexually suggestive positions with his boss, who is usually very patient with and largely oblivious to or tacitly accepting of his advances.

He is also very defensive of his boss when he comes under fire from the press or general public for instance, when some people present a petition saying that they want the PM to resign, he tears it up and throws it in their faces without showing it to anyone.

In the finale of Series 2, he tries to kiss the PM but is at first unsuccessful and weeps. When questioned if he has a crush on his boss, he denies it, then kisses his boss.

He believes that his feelings for the PM are mutual, as he occasionally seduces other men to make the PM jealous. Catchphrase: Andy: "I want that one Lou Todd is Andy Pipkin's caregiver but is often taken advantage of by Andy in various ways, although deep down Andy loves Lou.

These include Andy's demanding things then rejecting them when they are done for him or when they are given to him , and Andy's ability to walk and perform complex physical activities while out of his wheelchair while Lou is not looking.

Andy is often dismissive and unkind to other characters, and kills Lou's replacement by pushing her off a cliff when she becomes too strict for him.

The pair are the longest serving members of the cast of characters having appeared in every episode except the TV pilot and the radio series.

Mr Mann is a customer who shops in a store which varies in the merchandise it sells from episode to episode run by Roy. He will usually ask for ridiculously specific items in the shop such as "a painting of a disappointed horse " in Series 3 Episode 2.

Roy would then call to his unseen wife, Margaret in the back room for assistance. Mr Mann appeared in only one episode in the first series, but was a regular character in the second and third series.

He is typically dressed in a grey raincoat, dark striped tie and black trousers. These sketches are some of the more traditional in the series, relying upon word play and surrealism.

Early versions of the sketch feature Roy being unable to provide Mr Mann with his request due to it being too specific, and attempting to provide him with a substitute, which he may refuse for a trivial reason which is important to him.

In later sketches, Roy became accustomed to his requests and was sometimes able to provide them. Mr Mann himself does not have any catchphrase while Roy and Margaret do and often delivers comedic content by making ludicrous suggestions to resolve a problem such as asking whether a long-dead writer would be prepared to re-write his book and cut out all the "Os" to make the book shorter.

In Little Britain Abroad , he visits a shop in Morocco with a Moroccan counterpart of Roy and asks for Pirate Memory Games, which was the first thing he ever asked for at Roy's shop in the British version.

In one episode, he asks for "a record of James Last playing Nelly Furtado 's hits on a banjo with a picture on the cover of James with his hands open showing stigmata " and Roy has the exact record he asked for.

In another episode, Mr Mann asks for a book and is being very specific about it, then asks if he's being too specific and Roy tells him that he is.

He then asks "have you got any books? Appearances: Margaret is always off-screen, but she has been included since Series 1 Catchphrase: See Roy below.

Margaret and her husband, Roy, own a shop frequented by Mr Mann. She is unseen throughout all the series and helps Roy when he calls to her from behind the counter.

She usually takes a long time to reply whenever Roy calls out to her. One episode reveals that she is unseen because she has no arms or legs.

Appearances: Little Britain USA Mark and Tom are stereotypical American bodybuilders with enormous muscles, tiny penises and a tendency to boast to each other about their most recent workouts and sexual encounters.

Despite talking about being with other women, they are shown to have homoerotic tendencies toward each other and often frolic about naked to the eyes of everyone in the locker rooms which gives them erections at one point.

They never mention their names onscreen making it hard to find out which is which, and in the last of their sketches they have had operations which gives the one played by Lucas a long tube of a penis and the one played by Walliams a woman's genitalia.

Dame Sally Markham is a wealthy, famous romantic novelist, whose preferred method of writing involves dictating her novel to her secretary Miss Grace, played by David Walliams to type out, while lying on her sofa with her pet bichon frise and a box of chocolates.

This is a reference to the novelist Dame Barbara Cartland , whose preferred writing method was dictation in similar circumstances.

Unlike Cartland's novels, however, Dame Sally's stories typically fall well short of the required length, and she will use drastic and often illegal methods in an effort to lengthen them, such as having the characters over-extend their interjections such as "Yahoooooooooooo" , integrating excerpts from the radio, plagiarizing extracts from Lady Chatterley's Lover , or having Miss Grace type the entire Bible into her novel.

In one instance, when she tried to lengthen it using her own imagination, she barely got past 76 pages and could not think of anything else to write, so she decided to pause with it and start a new one, which consisted only of title The Lady in Mauve , Chapter One and 'The End'.

As well as having bizarre ways of lengthening her books, Dame Sally also has some rather peculiar topiary designs outside her house, such as a hand pulling the middle finger, a dog performing an act of anal intercourse on another dog, a man picking his nose, a penis and some breasts.

April and Neville are two workers for Saint Tom Ambulance, who, in their first appearance, are shown to go into an opera house to help a man who's having a stroke.

April always offers the victims various candy mints which replace the required medical paraphernalia in her bag.

In one clip April gets Neville dismissed, by shifting the blame of having the mints to him. At the start of the final radio episode April met a fellow volunteer named Roy who used cigarettes.

The two of them argued over each other's methods until they agreed on menthols when a woman collapsed. She and her grandson Connor often chat about uneasy issues concerning what Connor has heard of or been involved in, such as drug testing, racism and homosexuality.

Mildred then reveals certain strange details of her past, such as drug habits or homosexuality or incidents involving racism. When talking about drugs, she speaks to Connor as if he should've known better, but defends herself when mentioning her own experiences, claiming that "we didn't know any different.

In their final sketch, Connor admits to being homosexual, only to be called a "faggot" by Mildred. Scottish owner of a hotel who speaks and acts like an Elizabethan fantasy character, even though he is often seen speaking and behaving perfectly normally.

He answers questions from customers in a diffident manner using riddles, "spells", and a intentionally badly dubbed flute, which he refers to as a ' piccalillo '.

He also refers strangely to ordinary objects, such as the radio, which he calls the "talking noisy box". His eccentric behaviour often annoys and confuses his guests.

However, in his final appearance, two officers from the Inland Revenue service used it against him, tricking Ray into making overdue tax payments. His hotel is opposite IKEA.

In the pilot episode, this character's name was "Roy" and his appearance was that of a chef at the "Aberdoone Stook Hoose" Aberdeen Steak House.

He also played a metal flute rather than his "Piccalillo". It is said in the series 2 script book that since series 2, Ray has been continually wandering around asking people why he isn't in the second or third series.

The name is a tribute to farce writer Ray Cooney. Andy was badly treated by Mrs Mead, and had to clean the house which in Mrs Mead's opinion, was a "pig sty".

She hit him thrice, to prove he couldn't feel anything in his legs. Behind her back he yelled in pain. She also made him eat some disgusting stew, and as an alternative to a choc ice , he had to eat a pear for pudding.

Mrs Mead forbade Andy from watching "Des and Mel". For their own "entertainment", she sang an off key religious tune. Mrs Mead then took Andy to a cliff, where he had to wheel himself.

She told him that she thought Lou had been too soft with him, and told him that he had to do cooking and cleaning, no more TV or chocolate and crisps.

When she was telling him he needed a job, Andy was tired of her unfair treatment, and killed Mrs Mead by pushing her off the cliff.

Denver Mills is a former silver medallist gold medallist in the radio drama in the metres at the Los Angeles Olympics , who now acts as a guest speaker at various events.

His speeches are always politically or factually incorrect, confusing and often offensive to the audience, such as his speech at a police dinner " First of all, we both get a lot of practise running after black guys".

In a typical sketch, he will be on his way to give his speech, but upon learning a detail in his speech is considered offensive, confusing or is not factually correct, he will proceed to throw a page of his speech away, until he is left with his greeting and dismissal.

Once, he found out he would not only be meeting people with leprosy , but also hugging them, and, suddenly reluctant to do his speech, he threw himself out of the car after a discussion about lepers.

He regularly goes on about his achievements, but gets little response for it. Mills' US equivalent is Bing Gordyn , the eighth man to walk on the moon and the first to do so with a moustache.

The two are both Walliams characters, both have had some amazing achievement that they go on about, but fail to receive praise for. In reality the medal Mills is said to have won was actually won by the late Ivorian athlete Gabriel Tiacoh.

The Minstrels are two minstrels who are constant targets of quasi-racial discrimination. They are refused a room at a bed and breakfast, and are criticized by in radio broadcast by a government official.

One of the cut sketches shows the Minstrel played by David Walliams being denied a job to which he replies, "Is it because I'm a minstrel?

Myfanwy is the barmaid of a local pub called 'The Scarecrow and Mrs. King ' and best friend to Daffyd Thomas and often serves him Bacardi and Coke. She is very keen to help him find a gay partner, even going as far as to close her bar so he can have a gay night which she promptly regrets because he orders all the gays who turn up to leave.

In later episodes, we learn that she is in a homosexual relationship and about to enter into a civil partnership with Rhiannon.

In Little Britain Abroad , Myfanwy opens a gay bar on Mykonos in Greece, but it does not fare well because Daffyd does not hand out flyers to the locals.

It is also revealed in Little Britain Abroad that she speaks almost perfect Greek. At the end of Series 3, she is seen walking with Daffyd to the train station and she cries when he tries to leave for London.

Appearances: Unseen. Wanneer die een volledig zwart geschilderd gezicht heeft, inclusief kroeshaar en dikke rode lippen, is dat een vorm van blackface.

Dat Little Britain nu van Netflix, en de andere streamingplatformen waarop de reeks te vinden was, gehaald wordt, komt niet als een verrassing voor de makers.

Al in liet Matt Lucas weten dat een reeks als Little Britain nu niet meer zou kunnen. Het zou mensen ongelukkig maken.

We hebben toen een grover soort humor gemaakt dan wat ik nu zou doen. We hebben een lijst samengesteld van titels over racisme in de wereld, maar ook dichter bij huis.

Sommige staan op…. Netflix zet zich niet enkel in voor Black Lives Matter door reeksen te verwijderen. Het heeft ook een uitgebreide lijst opgesteld met films en series die je kan kijken als je meer wil weten over de problematiek en de oorzaken ervan.

Een van die interessante kijktips is 13th. Die documentaire uit van Ava DuVernay legt perfect uit waarom de verhouding tussen blanken en zwarten zo gevoelig ligt in de Verenigde Staten.

Little Britain begon als een sketchshow op BBC Radio 4 in , als twee korte series met episodes van een half uur.

In maakte de serie zijn debuut op televisie. In totaal zijn er nu drie series en drie 'Christmas Specials', waarvan er twee ook al in Nederland te zien waren.

De serie lijkt in eerste instantie vooral te draaien om platte humor, maar bij nadere bestudering van de episodes blijkt dat de sketches vaak slim in elkaar zitten en commentaar leveren op de Britse samenleving.

In de serie worden personages uit alle drie de landsdelen van Britain gepersifleerd. De sketches worden aan elkaar gepraat door Tom Baker , die bekend werd door zijn rol als Doctor Who.

Dit doet hij vaak op een absurde manier; zo claimt hij onder andere dat het Verenigd Koninkrijk aan Peru verbonden is via een tunnel en geeft hij bijvoorbeeld de tijd door als 30 minuten over Oliver.

Ook tijdens de show Little Britain Live was Toms stem te horen. De humor van Little Britain is typisch Brits, door de mengeling van absurde , droge humor met een vaak ironische ondertoon.

Ze is mentaal erg beperkt, behalve bij het beantwoorden van de telefoon, waarbij ze op een volledig samenhangende en beleefde manier converseert.

Helaas voor haar psychiater dr. Lawrence Matt Lucas , die bijna altijd wordt vergezeld door dr. Beagrie, vertoont ze nauwelijks vooruitgang tijdens haar observaties.

Ze vertoont vaak extreem gedrag, zoals het likken of strelen van het gezicht van anderen, of voorwerpen om haar heen vernielen. Anne houdt van uitwerpselen.

Ze maakte een schilderij met haar eigen uitwerpselen waaronder ze "Vrolijk Kerstmis" schreef. Anne heeft gewerkt in een bibliotheek, op een bowlingbaan en als pianiste in een restaurant.

Ze toont veel interesse in amateurtoneel en huisdecoratie. Anne komt voor in alle seizoenen, waaronder ook Little Britain Live.

In Little Britain Abroad ontmoette ze de paus , wiens gezicht ze likte en aan wie ze haar vagina liet zien, en ging ze naar het Louvre in Parijs , waar ze de Mona Lisa stal.

Little Btitain Marjorie returns to America in Little Britain USA and a new aspect of her personality is shown - she is also homophobic, as seen when Rosie O'Donnell attends a meeting and gets her own taste of Marjorie's medicine. As a success of the television series, Lucas and Walliams created a travelling stage show based Holmes Place Coimbra their series. Marjorie then calls Pat a fat cow. Add episode.
