Following the success of 2010's "Joe's Crackers", the BBC immediately commissioned a follow-up Christmas special for 2011, though it had to be pulled at the last minute because Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash felt that it would be too rushed and damage the show's reputation. It was then thought the show would return in April 2012, with a special Easter episode, though again this failed to materialise and it wasn't until December 2012 that "Barbara's Old Ring" aired, almost a year and a half after it had been commissioned.

Totally unique.Tremendous observational comedy.We all know folk like these characters. The writing and acting are top notch especially Ricky T who really is one of the best character actors that the UK has produced. The episodes can be watched time and time again and are still funny after repeated viewings.Very few UK sitcoms are totally shot on film but in this case it lends a documentary feel to the whole proceedings.Thoroughly enjoyable and well reccomended.
