Made Up British TV Shows

I started this Twitter hashtag and couldn't quite get it working. It's actually a more difficult joke than I initially guessed.

So, that's where you guys come in. Can this joke be rescued?

I had noted that besides Python and The Office, there's actually not much British stuff that's actually funny. Some British guy (or an Anglophile) objected and named a whole bunch of supposedly funny British sitcoms.

They all sounded made up to me. Stuff like "Yes, Minister" and such. Like parodies of what Americans would think British TV consisted of. So I started making up my own:

Barclay Mews

The Duchess & the Dollymop

Reginald's War

Humprey Pye, Private in the Her Majesty's Territorial Army

'Ere's Your Bumbershoot, Love

'Allo 'Allo (which turned out to be a real British TV show, of course)

The Quite Remarkable Claims of Tuppence Twaddle

Paddington Station Belles

Oo, Me Bleedin' Corns Are Killing Me

Samantha Snogs

Well I Say! (a game show about famous quotations)

Bob's Yer Uncle!

Now you go.

By the way I have an Epic Comedy Premise much better than this but I want to write it up as like a real comedy thing, with .jpg's and fonts and everything, so that's going to take some time.
