Downton Abbey, But Funny--British Historical Comedies
Sick of English period dramas that are about as much fun as a steel-ribbed bodice? Have no fear, these English costume comedies see the funny side of history, even social repression and mechanized warfare!
BBC comedy series parodying the works of Charles Dickens and heavily influenced by a similar, long-running radio series. A respectable shopkeeper, Jedrington Secret-Past, (unsurprisingly) discovers that he has a secret past.
