    I think mine has to be Only Fools and Horses, although I really liked Faulty Towers.
    What were yours?

    Only Fools and Horses if it's just British, but I think I have to chose The Big Bang Theory overall.

    Anyone not having access to BBC Wales will have really missed out on Satellite City and High Hopes. Father Ted type comedy.

    Fawlty Towers, George and Mildred, On the Buses, To the Manor Born, Only Fools and Horses, Are You Being Served, Some Mother's Do Ave 'Em....... so many, but all from the 70s and 80s. I can't think of anything current.

    I'm currently watching repeats of George and Mildred, much to the delight of my 19 year old (although his personal favourite is On the Buses). My 17 year old loves Some Mother's Do 'Ave 'Em and Only Fools and Horses.

    It was Victoria Wood. The diva of comedy. RIP.

    Mind you, Julie Walters was in some episodes, playing Victoria's mum!

    Maxine Peake, Thelma Barlow, Celia Imrie, Anne Reid and Shobna Thingie were in it, as well as Duncan Preston and some others, so a stonking cast.
    It was a bit like a reprise of Coronation Street with that cast!!

    It's worth buying a boxed set or something, because it was hilarious. I wish they would repeat it.

    Talking of Duncan Preston reminded me that I also really enjoyed "Surgical Spirit" as well. That was really funny. The trials and tribulations of a female surgeon! Duncan Preston was her sidekick.

    Maxine Peake's breakthrough tv show. According to IMDB, before Dinnerladies, she appeared in the odd episode of Corrie, Hetty Wainthropp, Jonathan Creek among others.
