Favourite UK comedy shows of DiS (latest votes post 177!) !)

In this thread we will try and identify the UK comedy shows most beloved of DiS.

I’m going to propose some suggestions. Some will be controversial, some will be revered, and there will be some I have definitely missed. I’ll let people suggest those I’ve missed for the first thirty or so posts (optimistic) before starting the polls!!

For clarification I’m including sketch shows, sitcoms, but not entertainment (ie the Graham Norton show) programmes or panel shows.
