Tedious drivel
21 April 2014 | by (Deepest Darkest Canada) – See all my reviews

I have to confess that I am not a fan of Stephen Tompkinson - my lasting impression of him is the suicidal clown in 'Brassed Off' and he was definitely mis-cast as DCI Banks - and the other participants in this sugary drivel are unknown to me. I lasted 3 episodes before I realised that further masochism wasn't for me. Based on what I saw, future episodes will include:

  • the horny Northern teenage daughter will get pregnant by her African




boyfriend - the wife will have an affair with the rich property owner next door,

while Tompkinson smiles gormlessly - the obnoxious son will be somehow disposed of by one (or more) of the

cast because of his behaviour. - Duplessis will drink himself to death(likely because of having to

deal with this dysfunctional family)
