Storyline

At Susan's mother's funeral, Arthur, the father who abandoned the family thirty years earlier, turns up and takes such a dislike to Ben he offers his daughter a million pounds to divorce him. Ben and Susan agree on the understanding they will remarry but Arthur dies on them, which is as well since he is broke. However the Harpers have already started divorce proceedings and must pay for them to be halted. Michael, likewise, does himself no good by pretending to be dying in order to date a young undertaker.

An inconsistent mess of an episode
11 February 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Even as a big 'My Family' fan I found very little to like about the 11th series, feeling that with the kids all grown up and moved out there was very little still to talk about.

This episode has a good premise, Susan's Dad trying to buy her out of her marriage. There are nice moments in it, albeit not many belly laughs.

Sadly though in their need to find a use for the other characters we get another attempt at black comedy in the B story, with Michael pretending to be dying. It stinks of desperation, and provides little to no laughs.

The 10th series was not too bad. I've no idea what went wrong with the 11th. Lots is the answer!
