Not Going Out

Series 7 - Episode 10

Review

Slacker Lee, in pyjama bottoms, slumped in front of the telly, eating cereal straight from the box, is at the eye of a big festive occasion. But his pint-sized Death Star, his dad Frank (the peerless Bobby Ball) looms large. Or, rather, small.

Inevitably, this means the pair of them get drunk, and their night on the tiles is encapsulated in a brilliant montage of increasing degradation. It’s a classic Not Going Out sequence in an episode that’s surprisingly poignant. Maybe it’s something to do with the time of year.

There are loads of great gags from Lee Mack, the human joke-rocket-launcher, while the stately Geoffrey Whitehead, as Lucy’s fridge-freezer father, steals every scene. And watch out for some special guests…

Summary

The will-they-won't-they tension between Lee and Lucy reaches unseen new highs in this epic finale for Christmas. Sally Bretton, Bobby Ball and Katy Wix co-star.
