This was simply the greatest surprise of the year so far on UK TV. I must confess to not liking Vic and Bob in anything else (like the Fast Show and League of Gentlemen, they are simply not funny) but in this they pulled the trick. They were helped by some great scripts, witty invention and good special effects. Only the last episode failed to stand up to scrutiny (too much fantasy not enough of the "detective" type bit). The ratings success of this has more than justified a second series, and the ratings for once aren't wrong. Witty, humorous and poignant, and with some great actors (Fox and Baker especially) in support. I look forward to a second season of something on TV for the first time in about a decade.
