Product Description

The third series of the double-Bafta award-winning show, finds Matt Lucas and David Walliams bang on form. Bubbles is back - with some heavyweight competition from the woman who destroyed her marriage; Dudley's mail-order Thai bride arrives, but Ting Tong doesn’t look quite as he remembered in the brochure? And there ain’t no ASBO to keep Vicky Pollard away especially when her gang are "well the best dancers". Lou and Andy get into an awful kerfuffle over boob jobs and slow-drying patios; Florence and Emily tackle the very ladylike problem of facial hair; Dafydd’s new career as a rent boy proves a hit down the local mine and Anne appears on "Stars in Their Eyes" - as Celine Dion. Sebastian has the Prime Minister over a barrel - so to speak - and Carol’s new job at a travel agent finds a new computer with the same old response! With Tom Baker still giving great voice-over, Little Britain continues to hit the mark like no other comedy.

1.0 out of 5 stars The bottom of the barrel 23 Sep 2009
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Damn, this was hard work. Little Britain definitely jumped the shark with series two, leaving them with nowhere to go but over the top: the punchlines are cruder and more grotesque and Matt Lucas just gets louder by the sketch on the assumption that noisier is funnier. It's always trying too hard, like a playground imitation rather than the real thing. There are a few moments that work - the disgraced MP with his family, Orville and the autograph hunter - but I doubt there's even ten minutes of decent material in the whole third series' run. Worse, the characters have nowhere to go, so it goes for escalation and multiplication: if the definitely not Women's Institute snob is funny vomiting on vicars and boy scouts, think how much funnier she'd be vomiting on the Queen? If one fat naked woman at a health farm is funny, then two fat naked women at a health farm will be twice as funny - especially if one of them is black, right?

The one grace note is that it does try to find some kind of closure. Lou finally gets some kind of comeuppance with a fire-and-brimstone carer, the Fat Fighters finally fight back, Dafydd tries to leave the village, 'Florence' has to choose between his wife and being a 'Laydee' as if Lucas and Walliams finally realise the gig is up. Although, of course, it wasn't, though they managed to atone a bit with the Christmas special (maybe the falling ratings gave them a welcome kick in the butt). Still, another series would really be pushing it...

I have always found Little Britain funny when I saw it originally on BBC 1 so to have the DVD is excellent. Its also full of features and I like the fact that if you want to play just a specific sketch, you can find that easily. Overall an excellent DVD worth watching.

I have always loved watching Little Britain as it truly epitomises the British! Pity the double act no longer perform as they are such a clever couple. I will watch the 3 series over and over again.

Its OK but not really moved on from first 2 series. I am a big fan of Matt Lucas but think they should have stuck with just the 2 series as it is now getting repetative and not that funny.

I loved this series. Yes the surprises are gone, but this is maybe their funniest collection of sketches. Definitely worth adding to your comedy collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Give the people what they want 28 May 2012
Format:DVD
Thinking back on the third series of Little Britain, I don't know if David Walliams and Matt Lucas knew what comedy is by that point. This series introduces an elderly character called Mrs. Emery (played by Walliams) whose entire reason for being funny is that she pisses everywhere without realising. She'll carry on a conversation even as a shopping aisle fills with piss and her acquaintance grows more and more horrified. "Ho ho ho," I can here the audience chuckle, "she can't control her bladder because she's old and going to die soon!" Am I missing something? The idea of someone not noticing their violent incontinence is tragic, not comic. If you saw an old woman happily walking along as her tights dripped with piss, would you laugh, or feel sad? Whether you'll find Little Britain series three and four funny probably depends on your answer to that question.
The rest is either hackneyed, tired, stupid, gross, or all four at once. Bubbles DeVere (Lucas) was always a one sketch character, and introducing Desiree (Walliams) doesn't strengthen her appeal. The whole reason Bubbles was funny to begin with was that her naked form was grotesque. Now she's like an overexposed horror film creature. She's no longer shocking because we've seen it all before. And seeing a new lot of makeup and prosthetics on Walliams doesn't recapture the magic (what little there was).
Andy and Lou go through the motions. Their sketches in series three and four are like someone telling you the same joke they did ten years ago, except they no longer get it. The only difference is that now Andy's stunts go beyond implausible, to the point where we wonder if Lou, even in the context of this bizarre alternative Britain, is mentally deficient for not noticing.
