Over three series the young stars of BBC1’s semi-improvisational domestic comedy about the middle-class Brockman family have honed their adult-baiting antics to perfection, while the weary, defeated or bemused expressions on the faces of parents Claire Skinner and Hugh Dennis ring ever more true.
The family are attending Uncle Bob’s funeral in this episode. “The important thing to remember is that it’s not a sad day,” Sue tries to tell Karen, who very reasonably retorts, “Well, it is for Uncle Bob.” Ben, meanwhile, insists he’s been to a cremation before – except Pete points out that it was actually a hog roast. Not surprisingly, the vicar (John Sessions) wishes they’d never come.
The Brockmans have to make some tough decisions about work and video games, as well as who to take to a family funeral - an event that has the vicar wishing none of them had ever come. Comedy, starring Hugh Dennis, Claire Skinner and Tyger Drew-Honey.
