Review

At first, this new comedy goes through the motions with a depressing lack of imagination. Its main characters — nice virgin; crass, gawky, showboating virgin; swotty PC girl who secretly loves nice virgin; posh, bright girl who’s rebelling against her parents — are archetypes from American films, unaltered. Real teens are a lot more diverse, and funny.

But the title tells you this is a set-up episode. The booze-fuelled fumble in the middle will spawn a baby. Can Pramface step up and grow up? Someone thinks so, because they’ve splashed out on Anna Chancellor and Angus Deayton as the parents at war. And the young actors are blameless. Pramface could still recover from its inauspicious start.

Summary

Comedy following two teenagers as they prepare for impending parenthood. Scarlett Alice Johnson stars as an 18-year-old who breaks her parents' curfew to attend a sixth-form party, where she has a drunken encounter with a fellow reveller (Sean Michael Verey). However, a few weeks later Laura discovers she is pregnant and breaks the news to the father - only to discover he is just 16. With Angus Deayton and Anna Chancellor.
