Comedy set in the social services department of a local authority. Social workers Rose and Al swim against the tide of bureaucracy, deal with the absurdities of life and try to navigate their equally trying professional and personal lives.
I really rather liked this. It seemed to hit the ground running which most sitcoms fail miserably at. Darren Boyd is a talented comic actor whom I have always liked especially in Smack the Pony. The rest of the support actors do just that and support him pretty well perfectly. Paddy McGuinness managed to shake off the dreadful gameshow host persona which he employs at times and is adept at delivering his lines. I am not a huge fan of Fay Ripley but she,too, is well employed as the sister in the department who fancies Darren's character something rotten. I laughed quite a lot and look forward to seeing more episodes. Good writing and situations which ring true make The Delivery Man a great new TV series.
