Did You Know?


There is no official finale, as the writers were unable to produce one due to the show being axed midway through production of a fourth series. There Will Be Pud, the 2008 Christmas special, is therefore the last ever episode. See more »

Not a laugh riot, but a good, well-written comedy and a good bit of fun
12 January 2007 | by (San Jose, California) – See all my reviews

Please understand that I write this following the broadcast of the first show in this new series from the pen of Fred Baron, the Americal behind My Family.

I really love the casting of Nicholas Lyndhurst and Celia Imrie as the ex-husband and mother of a woman who wants to go off to Africa to "help the poor." They, along with the rest of the well- cast cast do a great job with the material. The writing is clean and the comedy comes from the actual "situations," hence the term situation comedy. Not, unlike far too many programs, from forced innuendo, double entrendre, and other fancy words for "if it really isn't funny, make it smutty!"

Shot in front of a live audience, the laughs come in realistic amounts and at the correct times. I'm going to enjoy watching this one develop over the next several weeks.
