Something to look forward to
31 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

A gentle and brilliantly written show. Rarely laugh out loud funny, but so well acted and so many chuckles, absolutely love this show.

Crook is, as always, immensely likable. The other characters are vital and so well performed. But perhaps it is Toby Jones who steals the show, a fantastic actor to watch, and such good lines delivered so well.

A refreshing change to the unfunny, badly acted dross we are usually offered - Mrs Brown's Boys, stuff like that.

I hope this runs a few series, as the characters are so good. But perhaps Crook has learned from the master that 2 series might be enough, and move on to the next project.

Thoroughly recommend.
