John Thomson celebrates the work of Caroline Aherne

John Thomson and Caroline Aherne

Actor and comedian John Thomson looks back at the life and work of his friend and comedy colleague - the late, and greatly-missed Caroline Aherne.

From rarely seen early routines from Caroline's days on the Manchester stand-up circuit, through to some favourite moments from The Fast Show, Mrs Merton and The Royle Family, John is our guide as we wallow in a special selection of clips, characters and magic moments.

To misquote Mrs Merton's famous line to Debbie McGee, this is a collection that reveals exactly what it was that first attracted us to one of British television's best-loved writers and performers.
