great British comedy need a second series
11 April 2013 | by Reesfamily2004See all my reviews

I loved it, great heartwarming comedy, very watchable with likable characters and subtle observational humour. Similar vibe to The office, Derek and Gavin and Stacey, in that there is depth, drama and pathos; as well as laugh out loud. Must get a second series as has so much potential ...Loved Neil the paranoid newsagent and thought Martin and Jeans relationship was lovely and intriguing. I have found it very British in that it is so wonderfully understated. Some great laugh out loud comedy moments, like the school kids in plain clothes, dolmio family gag, the choc lab, and lots of subtle funny observations. It really builds from each episode. I thought the last one was the best and really left it open for a second series...Please....
