Felix and Murdo is a studio-based sitcom starring Alexander Armstrong and Ben Miller. Set in 1908, the year the Olympics first came to London, we see the modern men and best friends Murdo and Felix indulge in a spree of drink and drugs whilst simultaneously competing in the Olympics with no training whatsoever.

Although originally produced as part of the Comedy Showcase season, this pilot was held back until the winter to form part of Channel 4's festive programming. C4's Nerys Evans told Broadcast: "Felix and Murdo combines Ben and Xanders wonderful chemistry with Simon Nye's fantastic writing. It's a brilliantly funny treat for Christmas on C4."
