The original radio series was broadcast on BBC Radio 4, with Sean Lock in the role of Vince. See more »
All exterior shots in the first season show that Vince and Errol's flat is in fact on the fourteenth floor, not the fifteenth as depicted by the floor number on the landing wall in interior shots. In the second season, exterior shots show the flat on the fifteenth floor. See more »
Great stuff. Sean locke's character is just a mean bloke who seems not to be able to stand anyone else. Despite this he shares his flat with Errol, who is a simple fellow, perhaps a more less caricatured version of Father Dougal.
The beauty of it is that despite the strange situations they make for themselves, they remain real characters you can believe in. Errol is naive and extremely likable. Vince is the opposite, cynical, and nasty, taking out his vitriol on other people in unprovoked acts of spite (but in a funny way).
The supporting characters inhabiting the rest of the building are the exaggerated, strange beings, and i thought that a great deal of their antics were just slightly too bizarre to exist alongside Vince and Errol's reality.
But this is one of the funniest first series I have seen, and I look forward to seeing the second (hurry up and release it on DVD!!)
