4 Extra Debut. Can an antique shop's bumbling staff restore some priceless items? Stars Tim McInnerny and Andrew Sachs. From August 2010.

Antiquity is a lively audience sitcom about the staff of an antiques shop in the fictional town of Newby-On-Wye.

Sassy, cutting, clever, perceptive and in desperate need of a job, Faye Chambers is new to the team. She joins Rupert Bull, an old school bounder and cad who has somehow managed to survive into the 21st Century, and Toby Atkins, his useless but enthusiastic assistant manager.

Rupert won the shop in a poker competition many years ago, and sees it as little more than a way to make a fast buck. In this pilot episode, the immeasurably lovely local shop-owner Mr Richards has a set of priceless Faberge eggs that need restoring.
