Disappointment
24 December 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Andrew Scott puts in a great performance and makes it just about worth watching. The plot itself is serviceable. That's the good news.

The rest is bad. It's called 'The Town', but should have been called 'The Hamlet', since there's only one pub in use and everyone meets up all the time in a tiny range of locations. Then there are the ridiculous figures of the ruling mayor and his side-kick, who seem to be from a kids' series on CBBC. What parallel universe is this meant to be? I am not the first to note that English towns don't have mayors like this. Without this nonsense, I suppose the title would have had to be changed to something more relevant.

Has Mark never been back to Renton for the last decade or more? Is London on a different planet? Why is he over double the age of his sister? Why is their Gran in the programme at all?
