Wonderful
9 April 2017 | by momashtonSee all my reviews

This is the best program l have seen in as long as l can remember. I laugh with tears rolling down my face from beginning to end. Every cast member it totally delightful and the casting is phenomenal. The writers excelled themselves and the wit and humour is unsurpassable. I look forward to every episode and record it so that l can watch it over and over. I'm 70 years old and have seen some funny things in my time but this takes the prize. OK , it may be a bit over the top , it all adds up to an absolutely glorious , enjoyable time. It's just cracking TV !!! I love every minute of it. David Suchet lets Jack Whitehall take top place in cast listings, an actor of his experience and calibrate allowing that shows what a great man he is. Please keep me laughing ? I'm so physically poorly and this programme is better than any medicine , it makes me feel better , it takes me out of myself into an incredible world of top class fun , humour, remarkable wit, expression, warmth and gaiety that it merits top prize in the comedy awards !!!! Just thinking of it now makes me smile. I can't single out any one actor/ actress better than the other because they are all marvellous. Although Jack Whitehall has surprised me in his acting role and excelled himself, l've seen him in comedy panel shows and always thought he was funny . I would have liked to have seen his Dad in this too. Well done all. Your Fantastic. Thankyou for making me laugh so much.
