Trivia

It could also be considered plausible that the use of the surnames of well-known notorious British Serial Killers, for the surnames of the 2 main families and a minor character, a creative choice that many people find/found offensive, was actually a deliberate decision to re-claim the Surnames with good intentions, so all families with the surnames of West, Shipman and Sutcliffe now have positive associations.

Goofs

In series 3, both Bryn and Gavin's cars have completely different registration numbers from the previous series. Gavin's blue Saxo has changed from a T-reg (MY 1999) to an X-reg (MY 2000). Bryn's green Picasso has changed from CV02 (MY 2002, registered in Cardiff) to HV54 (MY 2004, registered in Portsmouth). They are obviously different cars. See more »

Decpetively good
28 May 2008 | by (Saffron Walden, UK) – See all my reviews

In the 1980s, the most famous hit of writer John Sullivan was 'Only Fools and Horses', but what actually won bigger ratings was a gentler comedy drama he wrote about two people falling in love, 'Just Good Friends'. And in some ways, 'Gavin and Stacey', a low key hit, is the 'Just Good Friends' of our time. At initial acquaintance, it's not riotously funny, and it's certainly not savage (unlike 'Pulling', another BBC3 hit); but the more you watch it, the more you find yourself smiling throughout, simply because the world it depicts is unquestionably the real world: this, in a way that few other television programs are, is a story of contemporary life. The central role of Gavin is quite passive and non-comic: the other characters are one-part sitcom staple, one part modern cliché, but still original - the mix works, supporting by acting and direction which overplays nothing and stays true to the rhythms of the everyday. As such, it's a record for the historians of the future to judge our age by; but very much also a comedy for us to laugh at now.
