  • Created by Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash, THE ROYLE FAMILY is an unusual sitcom that proved tremendously popular in its native Britain. The action--or lack of it--mostly takes place in the living room of a family whose last name is Royle. Together they slump into comfortable yet tatty chairs, sip from endless cups of tea, and are entertained by the drone of the always-on television set in the corner of the room. The sloth-like Jim (Ricky Tomlinson) is the head of the family, and the rest of the cast is made up from his long-suffering wife, Barbara (Sue Johnston); their kids Denise (Caroline Aherne) and Antony (Ralf Little); Denise's husband, Dave (Craig Cash); and the batty Nanna (Liz Smith), whom Jim frequently ridicules. The show is punctuated by moments of complete silence as the Royle's stare, zombie-like, at the television set, with the hush usually broken by Jim as he seeks someone to berate or dispatches Anthony to fetch him some cigarettes from a nearby shop. A hugely entertaining slice-of-life that could have only come out of Britain, this release includes every episode from the first season of the show.
