The Brittas Empire

Welcome to ‘The Brittas Empire’ page on ‘Bradley’s Basement’.

Here’s another one of my favourite BBC TV sitcom show from the 1990s. ‘The Brittas Empire’ stars Chris Barrie as Gordon Brittas. Chris Brittas was also Arnold Rimmer in ‘Red Dwarf’. This is what I remember Chris Barrie most fondly for, playing an odious manager of Whitbury New Town Leisure Centre.

‘The Brittas Empire’ lasted for seven seasons on BBC TV. Mr. Brittas tries his best to fulfil his ‘dream’ of bringing a world of peace and harmony at his leisure centre. But he gets it wrong when he doesn’t understand people and upsets many in the process. Brittas even upsets many of his leisure centre staff.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Chris Barrie in real-life at conventions including the ‘Bournemouth Film & Comic Con’, August 2015; the ‘Stars of Time Film & Comic Con’ in May 2016 and the ‘Worcester Comic Con’ in August 2016. I’ve had photos with Chris Barrie; have had a signed Gordon Brittas photo and an autograph by him and have had the complete DVD box set signed by him for the Bradley family.

Here on ‘Bradley’s Basement’ is a list of my reviews for each of the episodes in the seven seasons of ‘The Brittas Empire’, including two Christmas Specials. Please feel free to check out, read and comment on my reviews for ‘The Brittas Empire’ episodes I’ve seen on DVD. They’re pretty good! 😀

Here’s also a link to a list of who’s who in ‘The Brittas Empire’ TV series.

Enjoy! 🙂
