An in-joke between cast and crew

Brookside is my favourite soap, and definitely the most ground-breaking to appear on British television. But this, a 3rd spin-off video, seems to be more about the cast and crew having a big joke between themselves, and it doesn`t come across as anything particularly decent.

The video is over-long, and there is no great plot which Brookie fans may have seen on the television every week, and in the first two Not-To-Be-Shown-On-Television specials "The Lost Weekend" and "Friday the 13th".

This video is probably not even essential for the biggest of Brookside fans, but it does have the occasional amusing moment, and is well-written and acted for the most part, but it is just too self-indulgent for me to embrace it any further
