Very funny but it won't last
3 April 2020 | by omnipotentbillSee all my reviews

I found this very funny. The main character (Kate) is similar to Barbara (1990's series stating Gwen Taylor) and if you liked that then you'll like this. Probably also appeal to people who found the excellent Dinner Ladies funny as it is a similar sort of humour.

You would expect Brenda Blethyn to be good but she is more Vera than Alison Little (Chance in a Million - also an excellent comedy). But Jimmy Akingbola who I've never seen before is excellent in his deadpan delivery and Blake Harrison has managed to get away from the terrible Inbetweeners to be good in this show.

One reviewer actually said this was "borderline racist". Good grief - it is exactly the opposite of that.

However I can't see how the plot can develop and so I expect one (or maybe two) series.
