Fresh from The IT Crowd’s success at Sunday night’s TV Bafta Awards, Katherine Parkinson has hinted at a possible movie.

The English actress, 36, won the Female Performance in a Comedy Programme prize for her role as the clueless head of an IT department, Jen Barber.

Her co-star, Richard Ayoade, was awarded Male Performance in a Comedy Programme for his portrayal of awkward computer nerd Maurice Moss

Speaking at the event, Parkinson revealed that The Inbetweeners Movie’s success had sparked initial discussions about a future The IT Crowd film.

“I think if it did have a future, it would be that sort of thing,” she told Radio Times. “I always thought it would be nice to do a sort of musical film! But you’d have to ask Graham (Linehan, the show’s creator).”


The hit sitcom launched in 2006 on Channel 4 and concluded with a special final after a seven-year run last September.

The last episode, also starring Chris O’Dowd and Matt Berry, made Parkinson feel “a bit emotional”.

“I feel like I’ve grown up on that show,” she said. “The relationships I have with them are all so deep-rooted, really.”
