The Peter Serafinowicz Show was a sketch show made by Peter Serafinowicz and several actors that you might recognise from other comedy shows. It lasted seven episodes, including a Christmas Special aired a year after the rest of the series. Features several memorable sketches, such as the Brian Butterfield adverts for various services that he has come up with (including a karaoke bar or a diet plan) and looks very similar to well known injury compensation adverts. There are also parodies of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (Heads Or Tails; What Hand Is It In?) and Sherlock Holmes, among other things.
Tropes present in this show include:
- Black Comedy Rape: Holmes has his emotions run high when he solves a case; this does not bode well for Watson.
- Loads and Loads of Characters: Brian Butterfield's Detective Agency.
- Parody: The bread and butter of the show.
