Having set an unreachable standard in the previous two episodes, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton ease off a bit here, delivering a tale that's as brilliantly acted and constructed as you'd expect, with several sublime moments – but no knockout blow.
Tamsin Greig plays a friendly but efficient representative of a charity that makes wishes come true for terminally ill children. She brings an Enrique Iglesias-ish pop star to a suburban house. When the visit goes wrong, she and the dying girl's parents (Pemberton and Sophie Thompson) are tempted to take advantage. It's a slight, silly story that can't go anywhere and doesn't. Flawless execution rescues it.
Jan and Graham's daughter Tamsin is an extremely unwell little girl, so they ask a children's charity to brighten up her ninth birthday. On the day of her party, Sally from WishmakerUK arrives with renowned singer Frankie J Parsons in tow, but events soon take a sinister turn. Starring Steve Pemberton, Sophie Thompson, Tamsin Greig and David Bedella.
