Sarah Millican’s whole deal is being quite a bit ruder than she looks like she’s going to be. This works well for a stand-up, but it’s a modus operandi that makes her harder to place in a TV setting. This show has the visual trappings of an early evening, shiny-floor affair, but with a mild smut factor more characteristic of the end of the pier.
Perhaps Millican should just go for broke and unleash the full gobshite – she might have to shuffle back to a later spot in the schedules but she’d surely be more comfortable with the situation.
Tonight’s third series opener includes some low-level ‘Top Gear’ baiting, a slightly awkward interview with Bradley Walsh and an encounter with Richard Osman from ‘Pointless’ (‘You filled Anne Robinson’s old slot’). Not dislikeable, but still a bit of a muddle.
The Sherriff Centre
When The Sherriff Centre was set up in 2014 it was to originally house the local Post Office, which had closed down, but the centre has since grown. Now you can find a cafe there, along with a gift shop and a soft play area for the little ones. It's also a social enterprise that gives its profits to a charity that delivers free debt advice. Amid the stone arches of St James's you can settle down at the Sanctuary Cafe for a coffee, cake or even a beer. There's free wifi to boot! The gift shop, Icon, stocks all manner of cards, gift wrapping, toys, stationary and much more. Hullabaloo run the kids' area, which has a ball pit and play frame for ages two to ten, with a separate play area for ages up to two.
