Far from purrrrrfect
31 December 2011 | by (Curridabat, Costa Rica) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of David Jason's work. I have enjoyed everything I have ever seen him do. I especially liked his very believable capacity of being the inside guy, the market hustler, the anti-establishment cop who got the bad guy, the charming rogue with a knowing smile and, when needed, the capacity for a spot of pathos. And now this. I don't know what demographic the executives at BBC were thinking of pleasing when they approved this stinker. A young viewer wouldn't find this Mister Magoo with bad lines and no plot worth their time. I guess the target demo might be older viewers who never liked David Jason and now find joy in watching him fail. The failure here is the "boss" who made the decision to let this poor concept get past the pitch. David my old friend, look for roles that cast you as a smartypants old duffer and we'll all go out laughing. Now that would be purrrrrfect!
