Introduction – Outnumbered returns for a fourth series


Outnumbered, the multi-award-winning comedy series from Hat Trick Productions, which captures the turbulent chaos of family life in a way not seen before, is back on BBC One with a new six-part series starting on Friday 2 September and a Christmas special.

Two parents and their three children are locked in an unequal battle. Using elements of improvisation, Outnumbered sees the world as much from the children's as the adults' point of view.

In the new series, the family is confronted by an array of issues ranging from death, drugs, terrorism and getting old, to food science, Top Gear, the joy of ventriloquism and the perils of Subbuteo.

Written by the creators of Drop The Dead Donkey, Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, Outnumbered stars Hugh Dennis (Mock The Week, Hugh And Oz Raise The Bar, The Now Show), Claire Skinner (Trinity, Sense And Sensibility, Life Begins), Samantha Bond (Die Another Day, Downton Abbey), David Ryall (Harry Potter – The Deathly Hallows, The League Of Gentlemen's Apocalypse), Tyger Drew-Honey (Friday Download, The Armstrong & Miller Show), Daniel Roche (Just William) and Ramona Marquez (The King's Speech).
