Not only is the one of the funniest shows to emerge in recent years (one which revels in it's Britishness rather than trying to be watered down US-style comedy), it's also a sterling effort disc wise and is loaded with lots of worthy extras.
Every episode has a commentary by the shows stars and has an interview from the Jonathon Ross show, the pilot (with commentary), deleted scenes (with commentary - and lots of them), the best of Lucas & Walliams previous show 'Rock Profiles', a making of documentary (which is very good) and more.
If you are a fan of the show, you are in for a treat.
The only other BBC shows which have been given this much care and attention are the League of Gentlemen and Red Dwarf DVD's.
And the second series (being shown at present on BBC3 is just as great!

...Little Britain might well have gone down as an all-time classic: certainly this first series was an unexpected breath of fresh air with a host of memorable characters given strong material to play with and getting the balance between absurdity and going too far over the top just right in a way that the later series lost as they slipped further into catchphrases, volume and grotesque. Yet if the latter entries in the series (especially the dire third series) have taken some of the shine off the original, there's still enough great moments here to make you forget the later failures even if you can't forgive them. And the disc comes with excellent extras too.

For a while there was a buzz about the partnership of Matt Lucas and David Walliams when they had a show together- Rock Profile on PlayUK. Together with Jamie Theakston they took on different pop stars, such as Gary Barlow and Elton John and so it was no surprise when the two were commissioned by the BBC to write their own show. What they have come up with is simply brilliant- dark but hilairious comedy that takes a surreal look at the life of Britain and those that inhabit it. At first it was aired on BBC3 but made a successful leap onto BBC2 and has since grown in reputation, and become one of the most talked about british comedies since The Office.
Matt Lucas and David Walliams play perfectly off each other and act as foils to each other's own style of comedy and impersonation. Each have a wide range of unusual characters but a few stand out more than others, most notably the double act of supposed wheelchair bound Andy and his good-hearted but gulliable friend, Lou. These two are so brilliant in their execution they could have a spin-off series all by themselves. Other highlights include the infamous Vicky Pollard which Matt Lucas gets down to a tee, and the unconvincing transvestite Emily Howard. The first series is outstanding, simple but brilliant, it's a touch of genius with each episode easily watched repeatedly over and over again. By the last episode each character gets some kind of comeuppance but that doesn't mean they won't all be back for a highly anticipated second series.
Instantly quotable this series is a classic- and a must-buy DVD. Everything from the opening credits to the closing 'world record attempt' has you laughing and it's all topped off by Tom Baker's
booming voice describing the bizzare goings on with customary hilarity.

When it comes to comedy, nothing can top the wonderful stylings of Matt Lucas and David Walliams. Little Britain is all that hilarity in one, $ hour long box. The ideas and acting of the program is just brilliant, and the extras on the DVD are also funny, and interesting to watch. The DVD is rated "15", but in truth, the whole family can enjoy it, despite the profanities. Not matter who you are or where you live, you must get this, because it is truly brilliant.

Sometimes it’s good to return to a favourite programme of a few years ago, if only to see if it is as good as you remembered it to be. This is, unfortunately, not always the case, but I’m delighted to report that I guffawed just as loudly at this re-viewing of the first series of “Little Britain” as I did about ten years ago, I guess, when it was first shown. I seem to recall a decline in quality in subsequent series, when I found some of the recurring sketches in dubious taste, but this is brilliant.

All the familiar characters are here, including Lou and Andy (my favourites) and Vicky Pollard; I was never very keen on the Emily Howard character, but the only recurring sketch about which I feel somewhat uneasy is the one in which the David Walliams has a crush (to put it mildly) on Matt Lucas’s grandmother. I was struck throughout by what good actors Lucas and Walliams are and by the excellence of the supporting performances of Paul Putner, Steve Furst and, of course, Anthony Head as the Prime Minister. Tom Baker’s narration is, it goes without saying, priceless.

The two-disc set benefits from a wonderful array of “extras”; not just commentaries from Lucas and Williams (who both come across as very nice guys, incidentally) and background documentaries, but also TV and radio interviews with Jonathan Ross and Simon Mayo and a “best of” compilation from “Rock Profiles”, the programme which did much to launch the careers of Lucas and Walliams.

I was not disappointed by my return to “Little Britain”; indeed, much of it was even better than I had remembered. If, for whatever reason, you haven’t caught this show, I advise you to do so, especially as you should be able to pick it up cheaply.
