The sketch show, starring Simon Farnaby, Mark Gatiss, Ben Willbond, Matthew Baynton, Reece Shearsmith, and Martha Howe-Douglas, and based on the books by Terry Deary, is the only children's show to win best Sketch Show at the British Comedy Awards and has also picked up a host of other awards, including a BAFTA.
The new series sees Dick Whittington pitch a movie about his life, Stone Age technology geeks queue for hours at the unveiling of the Bronze Age, and some German bomber pilots find an unfortunate use for a tourist guidebook to Britain.
