In tonight’s episode, Archer (played by Sam Riley) made finding missing atomic bomb documents his main priority, frantically trying to track down the elusive Dr John Spode.
However, viewers could not watch the serious drama without thinking of British comedies around the same theme.
One viewer laughed: “Kind of waiting for this German commander to go ‘TLER!’ and it to turn into Allo Allo #ssgb.”
“If you want my cooperation, you would have to woo me. Ooh you can be as Wude as you like with me. #SSGB,” said another in the style of the Carry On movies.
A third posted: “Still waiting for one of the Nazis to deliver the line ‘your name will also go on the list’. #ssgb,” as a fourth simply noted: “#SSGB straying into #CarryOnAdolf territory.”
The costume comparisons continued, with one viewer tweeting: “That bloke in charge of the police looks & sounds like this officer from #AlloAllo #SamKelly #SSGB.”
“Archer looks straight out of ‘allo ‘allo in that hat. Are we sure he’s in the right recording studio…? #ssgb,” posted another, as a third wrote: “SS-GB is starting to morph into Allo Allo. Where is zee Madonna with zee big boobies?”
In next week’s episode, Archer will face a life-changing decision as the army impose martial law and a rounding-up of Resistance members.
Barbara’s surprise proposal could provide a safe haven for Archer and his son, but can he really trust her with the country’s most sought-after possession?
Despite being caught in the middle of a battle between Kellermann and Huth, will Archer finally agree to help free the King?
SS-GB continues next Sunday on BBC One at 9pm.
