Not Going Out

Series 5 - 1. Band

Radio Times
Review by:
Alison Graham

Friday nights are Lee Mack night, with Would I Lie to You? and the return of this endearingly silly sitcom, an unashamedly old-fashioned half-hour of daft gags, smut, wisecracks and wordplay. Mack plays a version of himself, the world’s worst flatmate, Lee: an ageing slacker who’s in (undeclared) love with his comely landlady, Lucy (Sally Bretton).

Lucy’s dull financial adviser brother Tim (Tim Vine) has joined a rock band, the Auditors, and his supporters are out in force. But his onstage banter is painful, leading Lee to observe: “Somewhere, in a parallel universe, Alice Cooper is advising someone about the advantages of a cash ISA.”

About this programme

1/6. Tim becomes part of a band at work and Lucy falls for the lead guitarist. In a fit of jealousy, Lee decides to follow his best friend's example and try his hand at the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. Comedy, starring Tim Vine, Sally Bretton and Lee Mack.
