Fun At The Funeral Parlour (UK shop)

Starring Tony Way, Rhys Thomas, Alex Lowe, William Thomas with guest appearances: Charlie Higson, David Walliams, Paul Whitehouse, Tom Baker and Matt Lucas

Aiming to do for Welsh undertakers what Father Ted did for Irish priests, this series follows a family who try to get their business off the ground… but fail to get their clients under the ground.

The Thomas’ run a family firm of undertakers. They’re a colourful bunch whose daily mishaps and unsuccessful burials develop into offbeat antics with hilarious outcomes.

At the beginning of each episode, a villager dies in bizarre circumstances. And with each deceased villager, the funeral parlour becomes less and less competent in burying the dead.

Ivor Thomas, head of the family firm, is petrified of dead bodies, and with his three eccentric sons in tow, every attempted funeral turns into another botched job.

Includes guest appearances from Matt Lucas, David Walliams, Tom Baker, Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson
