Hebburn

Series 1 - 5. She Doesn't Just Give It Away

Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

Hebburn’s latest arrival is Sarah’s sister Marial, who sets about soothing everyone’s chakras. This could easily lead into some standard hippy-mocking comedy, but Hebburn isn’t quite like that. To be honest, the episode rather fades away as if its batteries have run out, but there are some great moments. Jack’s first day as editor of the Hebburn Advertiser is inspired and the exchange when Marial tries to relax Pauline with some hand massage is a cross-purposes delight.

About this programme

5/6. It's Jack's first day in the office as editor of the Hebburn Advertiser and he hopes to transform it into a best-selling paper that really makes a difference, while Vicki has her heart broken when her boyfriend Gervaise announces he has big plans. Pauline embarks on a mission to de-stress Joe after his doctor tells him he needs to relax, meaning he is banned from eating pork pies and cheese and forced to drink peppermint tea, even on his son's stag night.
