Episode one
Work, love, friends and family. The four pillars of sitcom, you could argue, and ones without which ‘Big Bad World’ would collapse entirely. As it is, this Blake ‘Inbetweeners’ Harrison vehicle is amiable if inessential, following Ben (Harrison) as he returns to his dead-end hometown after years at university studying Norse Literature.

Only one thing has changed: while his parents (James Fleet and Caroline Quentin) smother him and his mates are locked into old routines, his ex has shacked up with a hunky-yet-sensitive copper. And guess what? He still holds a candle for her. Amid the standard-issue faux pas and idle banter come a few flashes of inspiration – notably the box-ticking job interview – but surprises are generally few and the laughs gentle.
