Series two, episode two
Jason Cook’s Geordie sitcom has warmth and personality in spades, but also a certain inconsequentiality to ensure that, while it’s never a chore to watch, you couldn’t call it essential either.

Tonight’s episode is a case in point, as Dot moves into the family home and attracts an admirer (hardy smallscreen perennial John Woodvine), Jack (Chris Ramsey) hires an unlikely genius to paint the nursery and Pauline (Gina McKee) struggles to reconcile her ethics with the business of selling houses. The chuckles are gentle and the peril very minor indeed: nothing much happens, but it happens very pleasantly.
