Read our reviews of 'Dates', episodes one and two
Will Mellor and Oona Chaplin play the pauses of a first date beautifully, as the initial fireworks fizzle out into resentful silence. But then, even if we don’t exactly root for them, our interest in their fates is certainly piqued. A smart idea, cleverly executed.
Sometimes opposites attract. But realistically, more often than not, they absolutely don’t. This object lesson in dating misery is played out by Sheridan Smith and Neil Maskell (both excellent) as teacher Jenny and city boy Nick.
