Little Britains’ Matt Lucas is Pompidou, in this superb visual comedy series about an elderly oddball aristocrat who has fallen on hard times.
Pompidou lives in a clapped-out caravan parked in front of his crumbling estate, kept company by his loyal butler Hove (Alex Macqueen) and his devoted Afghan Hound Marion. But when there’s no food, no heat and no money, what’s a man like Pompidou to do?
He tries the lottery or searches for an antique; he takes on a blind date or empties his cupboards for a jumble sale. But whatever he does, Pompidou embraces a whole new world of laughter as he tries to turn his life around – without being naughty… very naughty.
This endearing slapstick comedy makes its DVD debut on 12 October courtesy of RLJ Entertainment’s Acorn Label, complete with an array of excellent special features and we have 3 copies up for grabs.
