100"The British Are Coming"David CroftDavid Croft & Jeremy Lloyd30 December 1982 (1982-12-30)

René Artois owns his own café in Nouvion, northern France, during the German occupation of World War Two. His main day-to-day concerns should be ensuring that he doesn't displease the local German army personnel, and ensuring his wife does not suspect his affairs with his younger waitresses. But the local leader of the Resistance declares the café is to become a safe house for the hiding of two RAF pilots, shot down and without uniforms - or a word of the French language. He is also to welcome a forger, recently busted from jail, into the café - who happens to be an old flame of his bedridden mother-in-law.

  • Note: In this episode, the painting is referred to as The Reclining Madonna with the Big Boobies. In all later episodes, it is called The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies.
  • Note: In this episode, Michelle claims to be a member of 'Lifeline' - a reference to the same organization in Secret Army.
  • Produced by David Croft

861"The Best of 'Allo 'Allo!"David Croft, Susan Belbin, Richard Boden, Martin Dennis, John B. Hobbs, Sue Longstaff & Mike StephensDavid Croft & Jeremy Lloyd17 August 1994 (1994-08-17)

René and Edith are in the Alps celebrating Edith's 35th birthday - Edith has knocked the war years off her true age, including World War I and the Crimean War! This event brings them to remember the incidents which took place during World War II; in particular the events which took place in their hometown of Nouvion.

An episode that was made to celebrate the series' 10th anniversary. It is mainly made up of archive footage; but also features new scenes in which René and Edith renew their love for each other. These events take place after the war but before the final events (where Rene elopes) of the last Episode.

871"The Return of 'Allo 'Allo!"Martin DennisJeremy Lloyd28 April 2007 (2007-04-28)

A one-off special. René is writing his memoirs and needs help to fill in the "big gaps".

Features some of the original cast reprising their roles; inter-worked with a documentary about the show's history.

Notes edit

There remains some confusion over what the official titles are for each 'Allo 'Allo! episode (there were no onscreen titles for any episodes on the original transmission, though many episodes have had such titles added for repeat screenings and DVD releases, nor in Radio Times, though again the magazine has listed titles for some repeats). This had led to different DVD releases using different titles; and some fans have formed their own unofficial titles for episodes which have not yet been released on DVD. For the purposes of clarification, titles shown here are as follows:

  • Series 1-7: These are the titles which appear on the British Region 2 DVD releases. Titles shown in brackets are where Region 1 and Region 4 DVD release titles do not correspond to those on the British Region 2 DVD release.
  • Series 8-9: These are the titles which appear on the American Region 1 DVD releases. Series 8-9 and the second Christmas Special (under the title "Pregnancy") have been released on DVD in Poland, however with no titles, just notes on every episode.
