Pete Versus Life

Series 2 - 2. Frank Leaves Noreen

Radio Times
Review by:
Alison Graham

It’s hard not to like this, and believe me I’ve tried. But Rafe Spall is great at the whimpering, socially inept halfwit whose every action is fodder for a couple of sports commentators.

Tonight, Pete’s dad (the great Philip Jackson) fetches up at Pete’s house, saying he’s left Pete’s mum. Nothing of what follows is subtle, but it has just enough charm to keep you watching. There are some good asides about rip-off local shops and their paranoid owners and an unkind dig at Mick Hucknall.

About this programme

2/6. The sports journalist tries to make a good impression after persuading his girlfriend Chloe to take him back. However, his plans are thrown into disarray when his father Frank turns up on the doorstep, having decided to leave Noreen. Comedy, starring Rafe Spall, Philip Jackson and Sorcha Cusack.
