The director and producers had to fight with Health and Safety inspectors to keep the couch in the set of Victor's flat as it wasn't flame retardant and the character of Jack would often smoke a pipe while sitting upon it. Eventually, a compromise had to be made in which the fabric was treated to be flame-proof in order for the couch to remain on set for the rest of the series. See more »
Jack and Victor from Chewin' the Fat now have a show of their own and if the first episode is anything to go by then success is a certainty. The first episode was about Victors next door neighbour dying and Jacks attempts at getting the house and removal day. A nice little subplot was the grandson trying to be a boxer. As per usual there was lots of originality and typical Scot's humour. One of the best scenes was all Jacks worldly possessions going up in flames in a dodgy removal van. Of the new characters I liked was the Asian shopkeeper and his wife. The wife you never seen her face, that sort of reminded me of the next door neighbour in Home Improvements. Shot on location in Maryhill, Glasgow its good to see old characters played so well. Possibly only Harry Enfield has ever made being an old git so funny.
