The Govan philosopher, Rab C Nesbitt, is one of Britain’s best loved comedy creations and he’s still got a full compliment of demons to wrestle with and plenty to get off his string vested chest.
Rab began life as a character in the sketch series Naked Video and following a successful pilot in 1988, came the series that gathered an enormous following, with up to 6 million viewers being the norm.
After a 10 year gap, the original team are back. Colin Gilbert is director/ producer and Ian Pattison writes every episode, crafting his blackly comedic take on the darker subjects in life, not usually seen in sitcom-land.
There have also been some amazing performances over the years from the likes of Peter Mullan, Rikki Fulton, Jerry Sadowitz, David Tennant, Ashley Jensen, Sylvester McCoy, Anita Dobson, Norman Lovett and Timothy Spall.
And what does the C stand for? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
