The Top 10 British sitcoms of the 90s

The 1990s were a period of renewed confidence in the UK. The economy continued to boom and Blair's huge majority made 'Cool Britannia' a phenomenon. Oasis and Blur fought it out as most influential band, and the Spice Girls were everywhere. What a time to be alive! Sitcoms didn't disappoint either, and offered a rich variety.

Peter Bradshaw's timely reminder about the re-emergence of Alan Partridge in Brexit Britain (The revenge of Alan Partridge, G2, 6 November) is underlined by the inclusion in recent TV schedules of such absurd real-life programmes as The Ganges with Sue Perkins and Gordon Ramsey on Cocaine, which might have been dreamed up by the great man in a previous television incarnation. Alan's previous suggestions of Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank and Monkey Tennis are surely now ripe for production.
