Estate Agents, mail-order lingerie, and the invention of central heating: this is medieval England seen from a 21st-century comedy perspective. With an all-star cast, Pozzitive bring you a roisteringly funny new sitcom from the pen of Kim Fuller, whose CV is as long as a really long arm, and includes Spitting Image, Red Dwarf, Badly Dubbed Porn, Rory Bremner, Lenny Henry, and Spiceworld: The Movie, originally broadcast on Radio 4.

Thrill! as brave knight Sir William De Warrenne comes back from the Crusades and tries to buy a castle with a combined dungeon/gym.

Swoon! as young Lady Anne watches handyman Sam Tree grease a rusty hinge.

Sympathize! as lord of the castle Sir John hires the latest top-of-the-range horse, but can't work out what to do with the built-in ashtrays.

And Get Out Your Dictionary! as the medieval equivalent of Gordon Ramsey tries to prepare a banquet with a mandolin and some very old swear words....

First released: Monday 3rd December 2007
