one of the funniest episodes
31 December 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

i love this episode to start with eoin mc love who has to be one of the funniest characters ever and is based on a real person and i never get over the joke about the women talking to misses Doyle 'may i be struck down with every disease known to a middle aged women and as you and i both know thats a hell of a lot of diseases'and there's the whole spoof of night of the living dead which i loved being a fan of George Romero's films in where they replace zombies with old and middle aged women and there constant repeating of the word eoin sounds like the moaning of zombies and there are interesting parallels between the 2 also there's the classic line 'i've no Willy'
