First The Mighty Boosh, now Little Britain?
UK comics David Walliams and Matt Lucas have ruled out filming more episodes of their hit series, in order to work on two new projects instead.
A source close to the pair told the News of the World: “David and Matt feel the Little Britain format could be a little bit old now.
“They are now keen to concentrate on solo projects and then work on different TV ideas together.
“They’re not sure if, or when, they will bring back Little Britain. And no new series has been commissioned.”
It’s probably not a bad idea. The last series we saw was a little on the tedious side, and their US version didn’t exactly set the world on fire. It played here on Pay TV and is due for screening on TEN. Nine has just announced it will repeat the first series shortly.
Meanwhile, it’s been interesting watching some of their other work, including Lucas in The Wind in the Willows (and a few turns in Aussie shows too).
An insider added: “This is not Little Britain being axed. This is just the fact that there is a big question mark over its future.”
