Enjoyable Northern Romp with funny cast!
17 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed the 6 part series , especially funny was Johnny Vegas. Also loved the music , Good New Week , a sixties protest song by Hedgehoppers Anonymous. Michael Brandon and his security man Red were also excellent and Keith Barron as the Mayor was also superb , Barron being one of my favourite actors. Richard Bremner as the mad priest was inspired. Last saw him in The Sin Eater. Some of the jokes you could see coming from a mile off but so what? It was very satisfying with at least one guffaw per episode. I hope they give it a chance and do a second series. Well written in my opinion by Vegas and Dave Spikey. Definitely worth watching.
