Except for the scenes shot on location in London in the first episode, the whole series was filmed in Wales, including the scenes set in Essex. The house which was used as the Shipmans' (Gavin's family) house is located in Dinas Powys, a village 1 mile North West of Barry, where the Wests (Stacey's family) live. See more »
This was an outstanding series - won a few awards as well. This is Welsh humour and needs to be listened to so that you understand the joke. Many might need slapstick for humour but this picks up on the way many Welsh families are intertwined and how the matriarchal and patriarchal figures are often figures of humour. Ruth Jones demonstrates real skill in playing such a part and the cast is full of home grown talent.
They must be watched in order - each episode runs naturally on but will spoil the previous episode if watched out-of-synch.
Roll on series 2
