Excellent First Series
8 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

So nice to see ITV attempting to make a quality comedy.

I have really enjoyed this first series and would hope that it gets picked-up for a 2nd series.

I would have preferred the show to have been a whole hour instead of just half, as I feel there is too much packed in at some points. I'd love to see more about the lives of the characters outside of the newspaper.

Dave Spikey's writing is so good on this show. Many, many jokes just go whizzing past and only on a second viewing do you catch them.

Keep up the good work.
