Following the success of the third series, which had fared well against the popular ITV soap opera Coronation Street in the ratings, the BBC commissioned a fourth series and Christmas special, intended for 2009. However, they later backtracked their decision and decided to axe the show as the fourth series was beginning production, allegedly down to the controversial new BBC controller Jay Hunt not liking the show.

I only saw the second episode but I enjoyed Nicholas Lyndhurst who played the father and the wonderful Celia Imrie playing his mother-in-law Diana Neal, who is also grandmother to Alex and Molly, teen grandchildren. I missed the first episode so I don't know where the mother went. In the episode I caught, Lyndhurst invites his mother-in-law out to dinner to one of her favorite expensive restaurants while the kids have a party. Alex and Molly want to have a party but it's Grandma who might spoil it and not their father who appears liberal. It's Grandma Diana that comes across as the one feared in this sitcom. At the dinner, her son-in-law learns that Diana may not be that simply. Anyway, the episode was okay and I like family sitcoms and wished that there were more of them on television.
