Are there any other British TV shows similar?
19 October 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised by this TV show, after purchasing the DVD we could not stop watching the complete series. From the first minute with the family singing viva las Vegas, we were in there and away.

Brilliant acting from all especially the great David Morrissey,David Tennant and Sarah Parish What a wonderful near on 6 hours of laughter and suspense we had.

My question is can any one name any other shows similar to Blackpool?

I have just purchased Sex Chips and Rock and Roll along with Funland, are we in the right direction and any others?

The Singing Detective with Michael Gambon was in a similar genre.

Thanks for your help from Australia
