A quick-cutting sitcom crossed with a sketch show, set in a hairdressing salon. The owner of Quick Cuts is Sue (Doon Mackichan), who turns a blind eye to the various faults, failings and eccentricities of her staff. Together with Sue's relentlessly crooked boyfriend Trevor, they are one big dysfunctional family. The narrative sitcom element of Quick Cuts follows the lives of the staff while the sketch element will be the encounters between the customers and the hairdressers with the camera acting as the mirror in the shop.Written by
Fast paced and edgy without being crude this programme really makes me laugh out loud. Doon Mackichan as hairdressing salon owner and Paul Reynolds as Trevor her errant boyfriend terrific and I love the enigma that surrounds Jane Dowden's character. Most sitcoms labour on but the punchy lines come thick and fast and there's not only slapstick - love Doon's character shaving Trevor's head - but better still the writer has made you really care and feel for the characters. The rest of the cast were good too I particularly like Lucinda Dryzek, she seems to have brilliant comedy timing and I really liked the way O T Fagbenle switches between street talk and normal Estuary depending on who he is talking to. Why is it hidden on BBC4?
