You know that To The Manor Born Christmas special last year? Well:
a) Does anyone think that a one-off Brittas special, as talked about by Chris Barrie at EVERY DJ EVER, is actually a possibility?
b) Can everyone tell that I’m going through a big list of things I’ve been meaning to write for fucking ages?
I must admit, I always thought Chris’s notions of a special were something akin to crazy-talk, and the BBC would never be interested. But the BBC have shown a lot more interest in reviving old comedy shows recently – as well as Manor, there was the ‘Allo ‘Allo special, and the Goodies one as well. Is Brittas widely remembered enough for a special to happen? And, for that matter, would Fegen and Norriss be interested – because if they aren’t, there would be little point.
So many questions, so few answers. Unfortunately, the one thing we can say at this point is that a Brittas revival by the BBC might be more likely than a Dwarf one. And who would ever have though that would be the case…
