Below par comedy wastes the talents of Peter Davison. Pippa Haywood fails to sparkle in this stinker. While Davidson, Haywood, Moffett, Essell and Rawle try to soldier on, and Katherine Parkinson steals every scene,it can't disguise the fact that this is a plodding and poorly written sitcom.
Lucy Aitkens is truly excruciating to watch in this series and what comedy might be there, is completely lost in her scenes. How on earth did she get cast?
Compared to US sitcoms, or even half decent British sitcoms, this is definitely one that should have been binned by the commissioning editor's. It's like watching something warmed over from the 1940s with a few 1990's topical phrases thrown in. It seems incredibly dated and stilted in portraying a family in that middle-class English way that fails to be either funny or interesting.
Definitely a miss.
