Wales village of Cwmderi, and introduces some of the characters and actors who have made this the most successful

Liverpool's Mr Mirth returns for a new six-part comedy experience. "It's completely different to my last series, apart from the bits that are exactly the same," says Sayle. "But I can guarantee you won't be disappointed - unless you are expecting something other than a fat man in a suit shouting at you."
Sayle's characteristic monologues feature alongside an Australian soap called Psycho Ward Eleven with guest stars Jean Marsh and Peter O'Brien, and there are appearances throughout the series by Angus Deayton, Mike McShane, Beryl Reid, Phillip Schofield and more.
