Dead Man Weds
31 January 2005 | by joannesharpSee all my reviews

I think the previous comment was very unfair and I would like to say that in my opinion Dead Man Weds is a fantastic series.

It has been reviewed after only one episode which isn't giving something a chance.

Dave Spikey and Johnny Vegas are terrific as are all the cast.

It is original and well-written and brilliantly acted throughout.

It is unfair to compare this programme to Phoenix Nights.

I would also like to add that reading the previous review took too much time out of my life that I will never get back and me and my friends agreed that we are definitely gonna watch this again.
