A lawyer returns to Britain to become the first black Director of Public Prosecutions. She begins to suspect that everything she knew about the man she has been married to for the past 20 years is a lie.
This show has a genuinely orrible vibe about it. With the rough characters and grimy sets etc.. it looks and feels very much like Fools & Horses - and in some ways.. the characters could be what you'd expect to find in that classic show.
Johnny Vaughan shows his acting talent playing Paul, a guy who dresses like a teenager.. and acts like one too. I really like how he pretends to be someone he's not - and his friend Sean( played brilliantly by the funny Ricky Grover ) always believes all his porkies. Sean is also ever eager to help his pal - with often hilarious results.
Overall, this show is very funny. It has a down to earth charm, amusing characters, and well-written scripts.
All the critics who slated this at the time.. were bang out of order. Supposedly Johnny subsequently said the show was "sh*t" .. but I think it's because he was annoyed by the hard time he got.
I'd much rather watch this than Shameless, but sadly.. the viewing public don't share my taste. Orrible people.
