This bumper collection includes all 3 series, plus the 3 one-off specials; THE QUEEN OF SHEEBA, THE NEW SOFA, and THE GOLDEN EGG CUP. Also included is the hour-long documentary WE LOVE THE ROYLE FAMILY, in which a whole host of famous faces discuss their affection for the show and its characters.
Created by Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash, THE ROYLE FAMILY is an unusual sitcom in that the action--or lack of it--mostly takes place in the living room of the Royle's flat.
Together they slump into comfortable yet tatty chairs, sip from endless cups of tea, and are entertained by the drone of the always-on TV set in the corner. However, its the show's subtle humour and surprisingly poignant moments that have seen it become a modern comedy classic.

The Queen of Sheba
Whilst times have moved on, not much has changed in the Royle household except for one major thing - finally after years of hints Nana has got her way and has moved in with the Royles. Nana, now bedridden, has Barbara waiting on her hand and foot, and has even come between Jim and his beloved TV, but just how long will her reign as 'The Queen of Sheba' continue?
