The British Sitcom Guide

Welcome to The British Sitcom Guide, an ever expanding online reference website for fans of UK situation comedy. This site features information on over 200 British sitcoms with many new programme guides added every month. We are aiming to eventually provide show, episode and character guides for every British sitcom programme ever made!

If you've not visited before head over to our website overview - it gives a quick breakdown of everything here.

If you didn't get a copy of our April newsletter, no worries, you can read it online here.




We'll be adding over 100 more guides to the website this summer but are taking a short break from additions now so as to build a content management system which will make future updates much easier and provide us with more power. Watch this space for more information.
We're still building this area so stay tuned as we've got more content planned. Our eventual aim is to create an online community for comedy writers which means message boards, chat rooms etc so keep watching this space!
We always like hearing from comedy writers so give us a shout and let us know what you are up-to. Oh, and don't forget to add your name to our writers directory and sign up to our mailing list.

In our Advice and Insight section we've gathered together some pages which we hope you'll find interesting and useful. Below you'll find advice, tips and information on how to go about writing a top comedy and also some fascinating insights and opinons relating to the world of comedy writing and production.

Step-by-Step Sitcom Writing Guide

We've added the following pages to this website to give you a brief step-by-step overview of the stages involved in writing a sitcom for the British market. If you're serious about writing a comedy you'll need more information than is contained within these pages but at least it is a start!

With the help of sitcom expert Marc Blake we've identified the following ten stages which all writers will have to go through before they can see their creation on the television. Just click on any of the stages below for further information; we strongly suggest you begin reading at step 1 even if you think you've already passed this stage as our guide might contain some details you've not considered!
