'Gimme, Gimme, Gimme' was a BBC sitcom, which ran for three series from 1999 to 2001, with Kathy Burke superb as the loud, vulgar, garishly dressed Linda La Hughes. Linda shares a flat with gay, deluded actor Tom Farrell (James Dreyfus), and the interaction between the two is seriously funny - though Jonathan Harvey's script doesn't bother with near the knuckle subtleties. It's damn rude in places!
