An eighteen-year-old struggling to integrate into a hearing world following cochlear implantation witnesses the murder of a police officer. The subsequent investigation unravels a net of police corruption.
I first got hooked to Life of Riley in the second series and really enjoyed it but when it came to the third (and might I add we are only half the way in) it lacked in the various comedy that I had come to love in the previous series. With very few laugh out loud moments and irritating story lines. I get to end of watching an episode and feel so disappointed at how little I enjoyed it. Maddy (Caroline Quentin) can at times though really lift up the show with her natural acting skills that brings life and character to the show.
I really hope Life of Riley can pick its self back up off the floor and regain some dignity for the rest of the series and if the BBC take the bold step of making another series stop with the bad writing and humour.
