Dermot's Dilemma is the original, unaired pilot episode of Mrs Brown's Boys, but it follows the storyline of The Mammy. It is available on the Series One DVD release.


While this episode and The Mammy are the same, there are some differences, including the dialogue and the inclusion of Sharon McGoogan (played by Marion O'Dwyer) in the place of Betty Brown, who is absent from this episode. Amanda Woods, who plays Betty, is credited as Baghdad Barbie (a character from the original series) even though she doesn't actually in this episode.
