Heading Out

Series 1 - Episode 3

Radio Times
Review by:
Alison Graham

Sara’s very loud, very angry French ex turns up uninvited and colonises the living room where she melodramatically writhes around on the floor. It’s a madly over-the-top, heavily accented turn from the estimable Raquel Cassidy (Jack Dee’s long-suffering wife in Lead Balloon).

Meanwhile, Sara (Sue Perkins, also the writer) tries to pluck up the courage to ask out the lovely Eve (Shelley Conn). It’s fun and sweet-natured and there’s great support from Nicola Walker and Dominic Coleman as Sara’s friends, dim Justine and precious Jamie.

Meanwhile, Jamie is having a masculinity crisis - a situation that Daniel offers to rectify with his unique brand of machismo. Comedy, guest starring Raquel Cassidy (Lead Balloon, Teachers), with Sue Perkins, Steve Oram and Dominic Coleman.
