Great mix of characters that all Benidorm regulars will recognise
8 March 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

A refreshing new comedy based on the typical average Joe's holiday abroad for the past 30 years - a week in Benidorm. Why did nobody think of it before? Up to date themes are used to great effect. Including a gay twosome, a married couple who's action between the sheets has run out of steam and a middle-aged couple of unlikely "swingers" who unashamedly recount their exploits in graphic detail. It would be interesting to hear how paying holiday makers at the Los Pelicanos Hotel fared whilst the TV crew took over parts of the complex for filming last year. Regular Benidorm holidaymakers will recognise much in this series of programmes. One commentator has remarked that the show loses something from barely straying from the confines of the "all in" deal at the hotel. But I would suggest that this has been done to contain costs. I once wrote gags for BBC TV and was more than once ticked off by a script editor for including too many characters or setting in my sketches.

It's good to hear that ITV's Director of Entertainment, Paul Jackson, has ignored less than favourable reviews of this first series to commission a further extended series which should commence filming in Benidorm later this year. Let's hope that writer, Derren Litten, has a few more laughs up his sleeve.
