The "Jamdani Hash" curry that Nessa orders in the series described as being "duck cooked with honey and lime" is indeed a fictitious dish. However a curry house in the Welsh capital city Cardiff frequented by Ruth Jones has created the dish and placed it on their menu in honour of the series. See more »
In series 3, both Bryn and Gavin's cars have completely different registration numbers from the previous series. Gavin's blue Saxo has changed from a T-reg (MY 1999) to an X-reg (MY 2000). Bryn's green Picasso has changed from CV02 (MY 2002, registered in Cardiff) to HV54 (MY 2004, registered in Portsmouth). They are obviously different cars. See more »
Being Welsh this is a typically stereotypical view of the way we live out life in Wales. But we don't mind being the but of a joke every now and then. Particularly when the joke is as good as this.
I have often met like people like Nessa and Gwen (Nessa's character being taken to the extreme however) but where in the world did Bryn come from? There are characteristics of Bryn that I have seen in many elderly Welshmen I have met in the valleys and even in my own Grandfather who grew up on the edge on the Rhondda valleys, but Bryn as a whole is unfathomable to me. Such a brilliantly unique character of heart warming naivety and innocence (and horrendous cringe worthiness) that no explanation can accurately describe him.
I have to say that this series completely took me by surprise. I expected it to be completely over the top and totally removed from real life...... and it is. Having said that it works to such a degree that I urge you to try it out for yourselves.
