Tasteless and weak - one of the poorest episodes
1 December 2010 | by (Chiang Mai, Thailand) – See all my reviews

This series was written as a vehicle for Dawn French and thus, given her limited acting skills, some episodes will be better than others. This must be one of the worst.

The initial premise, that French is about to hang herself when interrupted by a professional assassin who threatens to shoot French if she does not follow orders, French threatening in return to hang herself, doubtless appeared to be an amusing "Mexican Stand Off" when it was written, but rather comes across as simply stupid on screen.

The episode thereafter descends into slapstick farce, by way of deeply unamusing jokes about "blow jobs" - not something I ever remember hearing on the BBC before? - and becomes less funny as it goes on, descending to a level that may amuse an 8 year old. It fails to have either a witty twist or pay off, rather fizzles out with yet another slap stick joke.

Deeply unfunny.
