Description

The award-winning BBC comedy This Country documents the day-to-day lives of young cousins Kerry and Lee ‘Kurtan’ Mucklowe who live in a small village in the Cotswolds.

Filmed in the same mocumentary style as The Office, the show follows them as they interact with the other residents of their claustrophobic Cotswold village: the local vicar (and one-time 80s popstar), Reverend Francis Seaton; aspiring tattoo artist, bodyguard and S Club 7 fan, Mandy Harris; and self-confessed peeper and bookies’ favourite for Worst Father in Britain, Martin Mucklowe.

Described by the Guardian’s Lucy Mangan as ‘perfection’, Helen Bownass in Stylist as ‘the funniest show on TV’ and Simon Horsford in the Daily Telegraph as ‘superb’, This Country has run for two series and is already a smash hit with viewers, winning three BAFTA awards (for Best Comedy Writers, Best Scripted Comedy and Best Female Performance in a Comedy) and three RTS Programme Awards. The recent iPlayer special garnered 5 million streams alone.

Now, this autumn, comes the first official tie-in. In keeping with the mocumentary style of the show, and in the manner of best TV comedy books, This Is This Country is a hilarious ‘in world’ spoof, and a parody of local parish newsletters.

Featuring, among others, ‘Kerry’s Village Tw*t List’, the vicar’s poetry, a log of all the times Kerry and Kurtan have seen Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen around the village, Mandy’s correspondence to her adopted dog Digby, Kerry’s neighbourhood watch diary, and hilarious adverts, notices and pictures of village life, This is This Country is as brilliantly observed as the show itself and a must-have for fans.
