Not Going Out

Series 5 - 6. Drunk

Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

A hungover Lee wakes up in bed with Lucy: “I take it you’re naked as well?” she cries, horrified. “Well, I kept me socks on,” he replies, “I’ve got some dignity.” Yes, after several series of quip-tastic lusting after his flatmate, it looks as if Lee has finally got further than a kiss under the mistletoe. Good news? No — they’re both in a state because they can’t remember a thing, thanks to all the home-made potato hooch they drank. And they’re desperate that Lucy’s brother Tim shouldn’t find out. From there we get a typically likeable, gag-rich storyline, helped along by the presence of peerless sitcom-senior Geoffrey Whitehead as Lucy’s dad. Yes — her parents get involved.

About this programme

6/6. Lucy commits a minor indiscretion while drunk, but claims to have no memory of the event. Determined to get to the bottom of the affair, she and Lee embark on an ambitious quest to discover the truth about whether it is possible to retain their memories of a heavy night of drinking - making use of liberal amounts of home-made potato hooch. Comedy, starring Lee Mack and Sally Bretton.
