Oh, Brother! is a British situation comedy show on BBC television, which was broadcast between 1968 and 1970.
The series was set in a monastery, about the well-meaning but inept novice Brother Dominic. It was basically a successor to All Gas and Gaiters, where Derek Nimmo had played a very similar role, the main difference being that Brother Dominic was working-class, whereas the previous character, Rev. Mervyn Noote, had been upper-class.
Oh, Brother! was not quite as successful or as affectionately remembered as the earlier programme, although it did last three series of 19 episodes. It was followed by a series called Oh, Father!, which lasted for one series in 1973.
