Peter Kay changed the voice of his Character Max for this show. In Phoenix Nights (2001) the character spoke with a much deeper voice. Kay found trying to do this voice for an increased length of time required due to the greater amount of dialogue as the shows star put tremendous strain on his voice, which he then kept losing. He decided to make Max's voice higher than that in Phoenix Nights and decided not to alter his own Bolton accent to protect his voice. At times Max speaks in almost the exact tone of Peter Kay's normal voice, due to how close it now is to his natural voice. See more »
Chuck us some water flower.

It wouldn't hurt you to show some manners after all they are free.
Hang on what's this? Bottled in the mountains of Afganistan? I bet Osama's had a bath in this. Why do you keep buying all this cheap rubbish like 4p Beans and Al Queda water?

We last saw Max and Paddy, the dimwitted bouncers from the Phoenix Club at the end of series 2 of Phoenix Nights. The two had been hired as hit men, but didn't do the job and instead paid off the person they were supposed to be killing. Max spent the money on a camper van and when the lady who hired them finds out they go on the run fearing for their lives.
Max, played by Peter Kay, is the quieter of the two, but probably the more intelligent. Paddy, played by Patrick McGuinness thinks of himself as God's gift to women - quite an opposite to Max.
The first episode, as written by Kay and McGuinness showed itself to be funny and refreshing. New jokes, new stories, and a new direction for Kay - this could be his first sitcom based outside of Bolton! Thats not to say basing a sitcom IN Bolton is a bad thing mind.
Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere looks like it could be a good solid comedy and I look forward to seeing more.
