Another Northern Gem From The BBC
17 March 2003 | by (Mars) – See all my reviews

The BBC did it again with this one. You can't help but fall for the charm of the characters and their dry Northern humour. Lloydy is probably the funniest of the bunch, taking on the role of "daft oaf" and always embarking on some half-baked dead dodgy scheme. The main character, Hogde, makes this series a very human one. His the sob story of the bunch, being alienated from his daughter -Kirsty-, the mother of whom is a wealthly local high flyer, reluctant to acknowledge their past brief moment of passion. Meanwhile, Spock is hung up over the prospect of living out the rest of his days as a dull schoolteacher and is forever seeking a way to revamp his image. All in all, one you should DEFINITELY not miss. The characters, the storyline, everything just comes together so convincingly and satisfactorily. See it now!
