Why no 2nd series?
16 October 2004 | by ZoecbSee all my reviews

I've always remembered this which is why I have googled it now in late 2004. I thought it was great and I took it for granted that there would be a second series but for some reason it never came. Shame, really.

I actually looked up Oliver Chris, now in Green Wing - and by a 6 degrees of kind of chain I ended up remembering he was part of this show. Stewart Wright I remember too - he's been in Coupling since and all sorts.

I can't remember there being anything wrong at all with this show - it was funny, characters were likable and it had a plot good enough to hold viewers. The BBC can be a bit daft sometimes.
