# Title Writers Original airdate Series No.
87 "The Return of 'Allo 'Allo!" Jeremy Lloyd (new scenes) 28 April 2007 (2007-04-28) #Special
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.


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.
