Ralf Little and Michelle Terry return for a second series of their self-penned sitcom set in Weston-Super-Mare. Sarah (Terry) is back behind the café counter along with mother Carol (Ellie Haddington) and grandmother Sarah (June Watson). Most of today’s customers bring consternation, not least Richard (Little), who has an announcement to make, and new character Phil (Robert Glenister), Carol’s estranged husband.
It’s all very staged but the script is reasonably amusing, with asides, misunderstandings and repetition to order. References to Twitter and Facebook nestle reasonably comfortably alongside the portrait of a crumbling seaside town, with the aghast Sarah the pivot between the two. Her frustrations will undoubtedly form the backbone of the series, and viewers will want to see her luck change – though how many episodes that will take remains to be seen.
A crazy-golf club in the heart of the City, where players can enjoy 16,000 square feet of 1920s themed golfing. There are two bespoke, nine-hole courses, five (count ’em) bars, a trio of street food vendors (currently Pizza Pilgrims, Patty & Bun and DF/Mexico), DJs and a two-storey clubhouse with a terrace. All this in an fairly innocuous office block beside the Gherkin. Tickets are priced £10-£13.
