Hebburn

Series 1 - 6. A Very Big Day

Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

It’s the eve of Jack and Sarah’s repeat-wedding and, as Jack’s fun-loving sister Vicki warns, “There’s always an argument at a Geordie wedding.” Except, that’s not what transpires in this final episode.
 
This series has a likeable way of setting up a comedy premise and
then ambling off in a different direction entirely. The route the
plot goes turns out to be oddly moving, though not quite for the reasons you’d expect.

And as the menfolk gather at Swaze’s for a pre-service pint, club singer Gervaise has an idea: “I was thinking of doing Ave Maria at the wedding, what with Sarah being all Jewish and that,” he suggests. “It won’t be tacky, man – I’ll do it with a bossa nova beat.”

About this programme

6/6. Jack and Sarah prepare to have their marriage blessed in a church ceremony, but Pauline and Dot are still treating it as the couple's big day, with the bridesmaids a vision in buttercup yellow. Sarah would like Denise to stop reminding her of when she and Jack were seeing each other, while Joe gives his son a pep talk and a gift that's been handed down through the generations that will bring him luck. Will everything go according to plan?
