Sorry, I've Got No Head is a fast-paced and irreverent "grown-up" sketch show for children, in which all the roles are played by adults.

Favourites include Jasmine and Prudith, who think everything will cost "a thousand pounds"; the Fearless Vikings, who are scared of everything; and Ross from the Outer Hebrides, who has the dubious distinction of being the only pupil in a school with just one teacher.

New characters for Series 2 included Embarrassed Louise, who struggles to deal with an unusual problem; an angry Snowman, who battles for equality in everyday life; and a sitcom featuring a family of dung beetles.

New characters in Series 3 included Colin and Malcolm, the airline trolley dollies who can't stop eating and Tony, who lives down the back of a sofa.

Our Review: You'd have thought a sketch show made for children's TV would be a bit simple and patronising - this comedy is neither of those things. It's just like a normal sketch show, but without any rude words. In fact, it is better that a lot of the sketch shows that are aimed at adults!

As an added bonus, Sorry, I've Got No Head isn't written or performed by obscure unknowns - far from it - British comedy fans should recognise nearly all of the cast (James Bachman and Marcus Brigstocke in drag in the Little Britain-esque Jasmine and Prudith sketches are a particular joy).

Sadly the show has been axed, so there will be no more series of this fun show.
