The Brittas Empire

The Brittas Empire was set in a leisure centre and was about a man who, despite having the best of intentions, always annoyed everyone he came across. It was the fourth sitcom that Richard Fegen and I wrote, and probably the best. It ran for five series between 1990 and 1994 and some of it was seriously good.

It was brilliantly produced and directed by Mike Stephens, had a wonderful cast, and is now available on dvd. The picture opposite is from one of my favourite episodes. Brittas has blown up the leisure centre (again) but emerges as hero after rescuing a small child (played by my son, Johnny).
