Matthew finally leaves for college
16 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

*** CONTAINS SPOILER *** This episode makes use of a plot-device often seen in sitcoms – assuming a character is male when they are actually female (or vice versa). Unfortunately, it is rather telegraphed as by not referring to said character as 'she' in dialogue, it comes across as clumsy phrasing and so the 'big twist' when it comes is fairly easy to have seen coming. And naturally it is an attractive female and so Matthew wants to stay in less than desirable accommodation. There is then a rather contrived ending whereby a younger version (called Frank) of Matthew turns up at Henry's house. It is interesting to note that in this final episode, Reece Dinsdale was in his early thirties and still playing a teenager (although his age is only implied).
