OK it won't change your life, but this a pleasant, good-hearted way to spend an hour. It's not a sitcom so much as light comedy drama. Some performances are a bit ropey but there are some good solid actors here and Blake Harrison has a winning way with him and deserves his own series after The Inbetweeners. It also looks pretty good the best side of Margate it's true but a fair reflection of its best side. It was a bit clunky in the first episode as everyone was introduced but it'll probably improve with time as everyone relaxes and their "quirks" are taken for granted. Take a chance better than Jonathan Creek on the other side anyway.

I can understand completely that it wasn't many people's cup of tea. Certainly not a cosy feel-good movie for the growing sixtysomething demographic that presumably ensured finance for the movie to be made. But it your relationship is resilient or you are single there is pleasure to be had in this grown-up story.
Yes, it was painful to watch at times, but delightful at others a bit like life. Yes you wanted to smack them both for being so... annoying. No, you probably wouldn't invite them round to dinner without a certain amount of sighing. But I defy you to work out, before the end, whether they themselves would work out before the end. And I trust it will make a star, at last, of the luminous Lindsey Duncan.
