Iconic, multi-award wining comedy from Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash, The Royle Family is an unusual sitcom in that the action - or lack of it - mostly takes place in the living room of the Royle's house. Together they slump into comfortable yet tatty chairs, sip from endless cups of tea and are entertained by the drone of the always-on TV set in the corner. However, it's the show's subtle humour and surprisingly poignant moments that have seen it become a modern comedy classic. This collection includes all 20 episodes from the hit BBC series, plus the specials 'The Queen of Sheba', 'The New Sofa', 'The Golden Egg Cup', 'Joe's Crackers' and 'Barbara's Old Ring' The Queen of Sheba: Tension mounts in the Royle household as the family contemplates the prospect of becoming fully laminated throughout. Dr Mahmood prescribes new medication for Nana in the form of yellow tablets. These turn out to be the same colour as the tablets that Joe was prescribed for the swelling when he got his mickey stuck in his zip. Meanwhile, a mysterious ginger visitor reminds Nana of her favourite musical. Unmissable! The New Sofa: It's a right Royle Christmas as Jim & Barbara go round to Denise and Dave's for Christmas Dinner. Dave's parents are also invited for what's supposed to be a Nigella-inspired Denise at her culinary best... so who knows what to expect! The Golden Egg Cup: There's a real buzz in the Royle Family household as it's a special time for Jim and Barbara and a celebration (including hula-hoops, twiglets and scotch eggs) is planned. Poor Mary from next door can't be present though as, sadly, she has lost all bladder control and leaked in both the pound shop and John Lewis... Joe's Cracker's: It's Christmas day at the Royle's and Barbara is up to her eyes in it as Jim is out of action due to an unfortunate incident in the supermarket. Dave and Denise are obviously feeling the coalition the most and worry that Anthony's lavish gifts will eclipse their gift of a fridge magnet. Joe reminisces about a tipsy evening of naked wrestling in front of the fire with Bobby Carter. Barbara's Old Ring: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at The Royle's and Barbara's gone overboard with the presents. "If you can't spoil your family at Christmas when can you?" she asks, having spent a whole two hours in Poundland. A new neighbour moves on to the street with an impressive cleavage but will she be welcome on the sofa? In a flash of seasonal entrepreneurial spirit Dave reveals the idea he intends to pitch to Dragon's Den. Will it take off and make them rich? Or is Jim's scratch card more likely to bring in the Christmas cheer? Joe, next door, is looking for love and places an advert in the Lonely Hearts column, 'Vacant Lady Wanted'. Who could resist?
