Great pics, thanks for sharing muddybug.

I'm trying to work out what the hell is getting made in the second pic.

Same here. Thought Big Train veered too far to the cosy comedy centre to be worth my while.

The pilot episode was directed by Chris Morris but was never broadcast in full. Some sketches from the pilot are scattered through the series.

Also, Catherine Tate was in series 2!

Awesome pics! I remember hearing he directed the pilot. Didn't he narrate the Jockey sketch as well?

On the DVD commentary for Big Train they said that a BBC executive complained that the bit where Kevin Eldon gets shot by Chaka Khan was too long so Chris made it twice as long in the edit. He does sound uncompromising from that alone.

All people should pose for pictures like Mark Heap does.

Kevin Eldon, meanwhile, is due a cancellation.

I've thought that ever since I saw this.

Linehan's, Morris', Heap's and Pegg's characters shine through in that photo.

Julia Davis and Jo Unwin?

And the lovely Amelia Bullmore dressed as a Play School presenter.

The odd thing is that in 1997 we were probably looking at grainy 1970s photos and sighing a similar melancholic sigh.

Will we be doing this about now in 20 years time?

Someone should tweet that pic to Linehan to jolt him out of his current state of insanity.

We'll be saying, "Ah, do you remember that old app that used make photos look grainy and 1970's?"

I wish I could see that picture without recognising anyone in it. Morris just oozes charisma and looks so captivating in a way that nobody else there does, but I don't know if that's because of my preconceptions or not.

I can comfortably ascertain that it is entirely your preconceptions. Chris Morris is the whey-faced, bald man sat dead centre with his hands clasped to his chin with integrity and a dark promise.

Or maybe it's the oriental bird on the immediate right?

Chris Morris is dressed as Jeffrey Dahmer (second from left, back row).

It delights me to see more evidence of the bandana that everyone talked about Chris wearing back then

The guy is an oddball. He's 38, yet he walks around wearing a bandana, for God's sake.
