Well meaning friends try to persuade Suzanne, a beautiful widow, to remarry and the choice seems to be between Frank, a philandering dentist, and Tony, a sensitive, failing sports trainer who helps her son.
Strong performances from an excellent cast and an interesting concept help this quirky six part series build into entertaining viewing, transcending its somewhat clunky opening episode. Interesting locations and a diverse range of characters keep Fish floating above its occasional plot absurdities but this is one series I would definitely pay to see more of. There's charm aplenty mixed with the thought-provoking personal and legal situations in which Vishnevski (Paul McGann) finds himself. To say nothing of a fresh take on a community that doesn't always get a straight airing - you won't find Lesley Joseph here, folks!
