Summary

Series 2 of the rollickingly funny sitcom set way back when....

Estate Agents, mail-order lingerie, and the invention of central heating: this is medieval England seen from a 21st century comedy perspective. A roisteringly funny sitcom from the pen of Kim Fuller, who's CV is as long as a really long arm, it includes Spitting Image, Red Dwarf, Badly Dubbed Porn, Rory Bremner, Lenny Henry - and Spiceworld The Movie, originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4.

Thrill! - as brave knight Sir William De Warrenne comes back from the Crusades and tries to buy a castle with a combined dungeon/gym. Swoon! - as young Lady Anne watches handyman Sam Tree grease a rusty hinge. Sympathize! - as Lord of the castle Sir John hires the latest top-of-the-range horse, but can't work out what to do with the built-in ashtrays. And get out your dictionary as the medieval equivalent of Gordon Ramsey tries to prepare a banquet with a mandolin and some very old swear words....

Here are all six episodes of Series 2, with stars James Fleet (Vicar of Dibley), and Neil Dudgeon (Life of Riley) and special guest Katy Brand (Katy Brand's Big Ass Show)

The fun continues!

I couldn't wait to get series two after really enjoying series one. My only criticism is that it doesn't last long enough - even when you try to ration yourself to one episode a day (it didin't work).



Sir William continues his pursuit of Lady Anne who, unfortunately for him, only has eyes for the peasant handyman (and Chippendale lookalike) Sam Tree. Lots more double entendre regarding codpieces and the like. Lots more links to current affairs (now was that a double entendre? - get series two and find out).

Well worth a listen

Cleverly done vehicle for political and social satire. Even if you don't go for that sort of thing, as a straight comedy series it is very funny

Funny and very clever in places

I really enjoyed thia. OK, some of the stuff was a little bit cliche, e.g. eastate agents showing people round a castle they might want to buy. Having said that, it's still funny and the characters are very likeable. well acted with, yes, some nice music.

Great Period Comedy with modern twist

Any additional comments?

This radio show is a riot! It's a great mix of period and modern crude comedy. Very funny, but pretty dirty!
