excellent
7 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have just finished watching the repeat on BBC4 and I finished with a mixture of tears and laughter. Jim Norton (Bishop Len Brennan from the wonderful Father Ted) was very convincing as Stan although I did notice his Irish accent. The actor playing the younger Stan was just about perfect.

I have been a fan for more years than I care to remember and the whole thing rang very true, even the last scene with someone ringing him up and being invited over. How many great stars kept their entry in the phone book.

I heard some of it on Radio 4 last year and was delighted to see that it would be redone for TV and I was not disappointed.

Please don't let Hollywood anywhere near this, just show this little Gem
