Stella

Series 2 - Episode 7

Radio Times
Review by:
Mark Braxton

Another week, another effortlessly funny 60 minutes. Loss of control features prominently this week: Luke and forbidden-fruit Zoe take it to the next level; lovelorn Dai feels the long arm of the law from WPC Glover; and looks could kill when a taste-free funeral that Stella has booked goes hilariously awry. As fraught undertaker Bobby, Aled Pugh spins gold out of all his lines, especially his retort when Stella suggests a calming massage.

On the dramatic side, Stella’s ex, the ever-composed Rob (Mark Lewis Jones), makes friends and dispenses wisdom, while withholding a big secret that will make him Pontyberry’s Public Enemy Number One. Will he do the right thing?

About this programme

7/10. The heart-broken Dai is still missing but Paula refuses to suffer alone like her estranged partner and instead expresses her feelings at the long-awaited Got to Dance auditions, where she gives Ashley Banjo a show he'll never forget. Bobby faces his first solo funeral, only for two parties to arrive at the cemetery to find only one plot, while Luke trades punches - and butts heads - with Lenny in the amateur boxing championship.
