    Obviously, I find this VERY unlikely. BUt whats the reaction to this mooted idea?

    An appalling idea. While we’re at it, let’s see Basil Fawlty in retirement, Victor Meldrew haunting his wife and another series of The Vicar Of Dibley.

    It would probably be very poor indeed. The last 2 series of Brittas were weak and the special before that (which took them away from the leisure centre environment) also didn`t work imo. I don`t think Brittas is that fondly remembered nowadays anyway from what I`ve read on other forums. Although I really enjoyed it when it was at its best.

    So let’s rephrase to ‘a special written by the original writers’. Cos for me, it gets a lot more appealing at that point.

    I like the idea of a sitcom about Victor Meldrew haunting his wife.

    Both Feet In The Grave too obvious a title for it?

    Andrew is correct.

    That is all.

    That final episode of Brittas was the sorriest half-hour of sitcom ever.

    Also this.

    And BTE seems to be going the same way. ‘It was just a TV show’ is far too close to ‘It was just a dream’ for my liking. Part 3 tonight may prove me wrong, but you know what I’m getting at I’m sure.

    Nah. When you resurrect once brilliant sitcoms years later they’re invariably shit.

    Completely agree. Put them back in their original habitat and it could work. I still doubt the BBC would be interested though and I don`t know why Fegen and Norris stopped working together.

    I`m guess equilibrium will probably be restored by the end.

    A Brittas special would be a good idea from OUR point of view (well, some people on here anyway) but is there enough widespread interest, I don’t think so. And we know there’s no chance it could be as good as it was at its best. You just don’t seem to be allowed to do certain things on TV anymore.

    What? It’s genuinely brilliant!

    I was gonna say, the haunting Meldrew has already been done. I rather enjoyed It. Not for a full series obviously.

    I certainly think Dibley should be permenantley retired. The last one was seriously dissapointing.

    Fools & Horses too. Last one was dire.

    Birds of a Feather is on the cards. Im sure that will spark fierce oposition.

    Brittas with the complete original team… why not? Cant be worse than the last season.

    To be honest I’d say Brittas has been largely forgotten. It’s a shame because it did have its moments.

    I agree. I don’t think I’ve seen that before.

    Oh no, don’t get me wrong – it was a giggle. I was just suprised cos I’ve never seen it before!

    I’ve got ‘Gordon Brittas – Sharing The Dream’ in paperback and on cassette.
