Would Love to See More episodes!
20 September 2007 | by (Manchester, UK/United States) – See all my reviews

I had heard this was to be a series (according to Red Production Company) and I loved the first episode.

If more episodes were filmed I hope they will eventually be aired or released to DVD.

Alan Davies is a great comedian but also a talented actor and this comedy/drama gives viewers an opportunity to see the full spectrum of his skills.

"Raymond Fox" as portrayed by Mr. Davies will indeed make you laugh at times but rather than being a one-dimensional comedic character "Ray" is a man struggling with painful emotions and needs.

Because rejection, envy, grief, and the fear of being alone are struggles that we have all experienced at some point, "Ray" is a character that almost anyone can empathize with.
