Trivia

There is a cuddly toy stoat in a different place on the set in each episode. This was provided by Dave Willson, a crew member whose nickname is Weazel (the stoat toy was obviously mistaken for a weasel). This lead to the game of 'Spot the Weasel'. See more »

Utterly Hilarious sitcom
26 December 2016 | by razrose_86See all my reviews

You would have to be an utterly po-faced misery not to find this program hilarious. Chris Addison brings a touch of the absurd and surreal to the premise of a research laboratory. He is ably assisted by an excellent cast, all adding their various quirks to the mix.

I suspect that this series did not find favour with the BBC who consider anything more daring than Dads Army to be beyond the pale. Let us not forget that they did not like Monty Python or Blackadder so their comedy judgement is not always sound.

The series grew in hilarity as it went on and is worth catching up with for the puns alone.
