Friday Night Dinner

S3-E3 Mr Morris Returns

S3-E3 Mr Morris Returns

Catch Up


Followers of Robert Popper’s agonising sitcom will remember Mr Morris, the angry old weirdo who inveigled himself into the affections of Grandma – Jackie’s 80-year-old mum. Mr Morris has a Hitler moustache, a high opinion of himself and an appalling temper, as he showed last time he visited the house.

And now Grandma’s coming to dinner, she has invited him, and they can’t stop mentioning their erotic adventures. “Jackie you should be happy for me, I’m a sexually satisfied woman!” purrs Grandma, as Mr Morris accuses everyone of being a punk rocker.

It’s a perfect storm of ghastliness for the Goodmans, which only gets worse when they head off on a celebratory trip to the bowling alley.


Continuing the third series of Robert Popper's award-winning comedy about the Goodmans' Friday night gatherings. The family is distraught when Grandma gets engaged to Mr Morris, her horrible 85-year-old boyfriend who upset everyone and lost his temper the first time he came for dinner in 2012. Dad couldn't stand him back then and hid in his shed, but will they get along this time? Meanwhile, Jim collects money for charity dressed in a dog costume that doesn't leave out any detail. Starring Simon Bird, Tom Rosenthal, Tamsin Greig, Paul Ritter and Mark Heap, with Frances Cuka and Harry Landis.
