Review

Stand by with your Bolly Stoli cocktails, Ab Fab fans. The bad girls of Notting Hill are back for the first time in six years — and they’re on sparkling form. Eddy is enduring “the fat cell reunion of the year”, Saffy gains unexpected respect from Patsy, Mother is pilfering spoons and bonkers Bubble re-enacts the royal wedding for an ex-con. The lines and sight gags are sharp, there’s a special treat for The Killing devotees and this — the first of three 20th anniversary specials — is blissfully free of any mention of Christmas.

Summary

A homecoming at the Monsoon household leads to a life-changing experience for one of the gang, raising questions of identity that could involve a certain person owning up to her real age - if she can remember it. Hit comedy, starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, with Julia Sawalha, June Whitfield and Jane Horrocks, and featuring a guest appearance by Danish actress Sofie Grabol.
