All You Need to Know about The Great British Sitcom Quiz Book



After months of research and plenty of laughs re-watching some of the best comedy British television has to offer, The Great British Sitcom Quiz Book is finally here! Containing 1000 questions on 100 different British television sitcoms, there should be something to satisfy all fans of great comedy.

It was a really tough task narrowing down the number of sitcoms featured in the book to just 100 but both myself and Lisa believe the shows that made the final cut represent the very best comedy in British TV history, from the 1950s right through to the present day.

Here is a full list of the comedies featured in the book:

2point4 Children; Absolutely Fabulous; Allo Allo; Are You Being Served?; The Army Game; As Time Goes By; Benidorm; Birds of a Feather; Black Books; Blackadder; Blackadder II; Blackadder the Third; Blackadder Goes Forth; Bless This House; Bottom; Bread; The Brittas Empire; Brush Strokes; Butterflies; Citizen Smith; Dad's Army; Dear John; Desmond's; The Detectives; Dinnerladies; Drop the Dead Donkey; Duty Free; Early Doors; Ever Decreasing Circles; Extras; The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin; Father Ted; Fawlty Towers; Filthy Rich and Catflap; Fresh Fields; Gavin and Stacey; George and Mildred; George and the Dragon; Gimme Gimme Gimme; The Good Life; Goodnight Sweetheart; The Green Green Grass; Hancock's Half Hour; Hi-de-Hi; I Didn't Know You Cared; I'm Alan Partridge; The Inbetweeners; It Ain't Half Hot Mum; Just Good Friends; Keeping Up Appearances; Last of the Summer Wine; The Liver Birds; Love Thy Neighbour; Man About the House; Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere; May to December; Men Behaving Badly; Mind Your Language; Miranda; Mrs Brown's Boys; My Family; My Hero; Never the Twain; The New Statesman; No Place Like Home; Not Going Out; The Office; On The Buses; One Foot in the Grave; Only Fools and Horses; Only When I Laugh; Open All Hours; Phoenix Nights; Please Sir; Porridge; Rab C Nesbitt; The Rag Trade; Red Dwarf; Rising Damp; Robin's Nest; The Royle Family; Shelley; The Smoking Room; Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em; Sorry; Spaced; Steptoe and Son; Sykes; Terry and June; The Thin Blue Line; Till Death Us Do Part; To the Manor Born; Two Pints of Lager and a Packet Of Crisps; Up Pompeii!; The Vicar of Dibley; Waiting for God; Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads?; Yes Minister; Yes Prime Minister; The Young Ones

Hopefully there are some of your favourites included in that list!

A Chat with Sally Geeson

A few weeks ago, I had a wonderful chat with the lovely Sally Geeson. Sally shared some wonderful memories of working with Sid James on the much-loved Bless This House. The interview was published on my Sid's Place website but just in case you missed it, I'm republishing it here.   



From 1971 to 1976, Sid James was a very familiar presence in the life of actress Sally Geeson. During this time, Sally appeared with Sid in every episode of the beloved smash-hit sitcom Bless This House, as well as the big-screen spin-off film, Along the way they also starred in two Carry On films together..

Many wonderfully talented people who reached the height of their fame during the Proper Telly era of the seventies and eighties are no longer with us.

Dame June Whitfield

Just two days ago on December 28, we said goodbye to a lady who truly deserved her status as a national treasure. For well over sixty years, June Whitfield entertained the nation with wonderful performances in scores of television, film and stage productions. She starred alongside some of the biggest names in British comedy, such as Tony Hancock, Frankie Howerd, Dick Emery and Peter Sellers, becoming a legend herself in the process. For many of us, including myself, June will be most fondly remembered for her long-running screen partnership with the great Terry Scott, first in the sitcom Happy Ever After from 19…

A Nostalgic Chat with Steve James

Back in 2016, I had the pleasure of having a Skype video chat with Steve James, successful music producer and the son of my comedy hero, the one and only Sid James. This interview was first published on Sid's Place, my tribute blog to Sid. With it being Father's Day today, I thought it an appropriate time to republish my chat with Steve here as he recalls many wonderful memories about life with his famous dad.
