Happy Families

Thu Jul 4, 9-10pm, ITV

By Phil Harrison
Series one, episode four
No previews were available of the final part of this fly-on-the-wall series. Which is a shame because, although the idea is well-worn, the participants in this series have offered considerable charm and insight. Ultimately, these families have affirmed values that most of us share and, even if that’s arguably slightly lazy as a TV concept, it’s hard not to be cheered by their stoic functionality.

Tonight, the Tahirs encounter that most universal of relationship issue – the troublesome in-law. But we’d expect the episode to centre around Mel and Kris as their renewal of vows looms. Their relationship has often seemed stormy: challenged by financial issues and, at times, hanging by a thread. But we’d be surprised if this finale (and, given how likeable they seem, dismayed) didn’t manage something uplifting.
