Set in 1922, is the story of a mail order bride, one of 700, aboard the SS KING ALEXANDER, who falls in love with an American photographer. She is bound for her new husband, in New York; he is on his way home to a failed marriage.
Alistair McGowan and Ronni Ancona manage something quite spectacular with this show; they manage to be even more annoying than the vacuous celebrities they impersonate. This programme stinks of everything that has been wrong with pre-watershed BBC One comedy for years. Skeletal scripts and the fact that no amount of makeup can make Alistair McGowan look like anybody other than Alistair McGowan result in what is a genuine contender for the most woeful "comedy" of all time.
Go watch Rory Bremner instead. See how it should be done. This show doesn't deserve to be put in the dustbin of history, but the incinerator.
