Fun At The Funeral Parlour

Fun At The Funeral Parlour

Welsh funeral directors Ivor, Arwell, Percy and Gwynne Thomas run a family business that should be doomed to failure. For a start, the boss and father of the clan, Ivor, is scared of dead bodies and socially inept to such a degree that his wife ran off with a midget. Then there is Ivor's three sons...

Percy desperately wants to be a rock star. His rock n' roll ways have already seen him serve a term in prison for 'misusing corpses' - dressing them up as Roy Orbison and touring with them! Arwell is completely obsessed with his Fiat Panda. And the there's Gwynne, the oldest of the trio and it shows. Possessing the mental age of a child, he micturates whenever he talks!

This set includes both complete series of the show. Extras are: commentaries on six episodes with Rhys Thomas, Tony Way, Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson, Simon Day and Phil Cornwell; a 'making of' documentary on Series 2; extended scenes, and out-takes.
