The character Derek Faye was based off a fan Catherine Tate had met, assumed was gay and offended when she said she had lots of gay fans (the sketch where the character met Bonnie Langford was almost a word for word retelling of the incident) See more »
From some of the one star reviews on this site it appears that Catherine Tate's comedy perhaps comes a bit too close to the knuckle for some. I suspect most of the bad reviews have been written by folks that see themselves in her characters.
Anchored on catchphrases (as is much of British comedy), this show gets a bit samey after a while, but the sheer brilliance of the characters, even the auxiliary ones, is mesmerizing. It is also simply dead clever much of the time.
I believe the average rating of 7 is about right for this one. I gave it a nine to counterbalance those who seem to have it in for the actress.
