Fantastic and refreshing for BBC3
11 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Can't believe this is another great comedy that will be shown and then disappear into oblivion. Written and starring Dan Clark (Johnny Two Hats from Mighty Boosh), the atmosphere, comic subtleties and characters impressed me no end. The main story is based on 'dickhead' Don who is informed and delighted to hear he inherited his grandmothers house, this brings along a mortgage and Don's dead grandmothers carer Eddie, a fantastic original character who ends up caring for Don without asking for anything back, his strange upbeat caring persona is a brilliant comedy addition. With bills to pay he ends up renting a room to girl of his dreams and ex classmate Abby Jones unaware she has a serious relationship with anally retentive boyfriend Karl getting in the way. A joy to watch, hopefully a DVD will come out but can see it being another 'Snuff box'. What this comedy isn't is something trying hard to be crazy and wacky for the "youf". Will be keeping an eye on anything Dan Clark writes in the future.
