Did we like it?
Yes, because Ian Richardson was gleefully snobbish and unbearably rude.
What was good about it?
• Ian Richardson’s turn as an arrogant, lecherous snob.
• Neil Pearson and Brian Murphy as feuding neighbours.
• It was undemanding fare featuring some talented British actors.
• The “Hoot me I’m a tosser” scene.
What was bad about it?
• Neil Pearson’s affair, which led to a weak joke mentioning the Home Secretary.
• The pregnancy subplot – tedious and unnecessary.
• No Martin Clunes.
• Careline’s message sliding across the screen.
