Sitcom Fun at the Funeral Parlour took us into the world of a family of funeral directors Thomas, Thomas, Thomas & Thomas in a small South Wales village. Head of the family is Ivor who actually has a fear of dead bodies and his three sons Percy, Arwell and Gwynne have plenty of problems too.
The series had quite a good pedigree, Rhys Thomas was a Fast Show alumni (indeed Fast Show co-creator Charlie Higson acted as script editor on this) and attracted some big name guest stars including Matt Lucas, David Walliams, Brian Blessed, Bill Oddie, Tom Baker, Christopher Cazenove, Art Malik, Phil Cornwell and Dudley Sutton as well as Fast Show stars Paul Whitehouse, Mark Williams and Higson.
