‘Allo ‘Allo! Series 08 Overview


Introduction

‘Allo ‘Allo! is a British sitcom television series created by David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd, starring Gorden Kaye, and originally broadcast on BBC One.

Outline

Series 8 marks a change in the series. Rather than continuing to tell the story from the end of the seventh series, the first episode picks up the story some two years later. This sees the departure of the two British airmen and Bertorelli from the series. John B. Hobbs became the producer for the show.

In this series the letters in the initial credits were yellow instead of white like all earlier series. Secondly, there was no exclamation mark, when the title “‘Allo ‘Allo” was shown on screen.

Background

The eighth series of the British sitcom series ‘Allo ‘Allo! contains a Christmas special which aired on 24 December 1991, and seven episodes which first aired between 12 January and 01 March 1992.
