A man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire community that has returned from the dead to eat the living.
Exceptional London cop Nicholas Angel is involuntarily transferred to a quaint English village and paired with a witless new partner. While on the beat, Nicholas suspects a sinister conspiracy is afoot with the residents.
This is a very funny show if you like that kind of thing. Not a lot happens really. They are after a golden crisp, no ..... actually it's a potato. I don't know why, but it doesn't really matter all that much. Elton John dies in one episode, but is no great loss. Sir Bernard is incredibly sexy if you're into short, cuddly, balding men, and his off-sider is a total sleaze. In the last episode they find the Golden Potato and bring meaning to the entire series, it's a very moving moment. The episode with the boy scouts was a ripsnorter - very amusing
if you like that kind of thing. If this hasn't whet your appetite to
view the show, tell someone who cares.
