Sweet and funny one minute, laboured and creaky the next — we’re going to have to get used to
Great Night Out
’s ups and downs. But at least the performances are consistently good, particularly Craig Parkinson as self-doubting Glyn, who this week has a birthday party and would love the beautiful Julie (Christine Bottomley — simultaneously playing a dodgy copper on Silent Witness) to be there.
Some people might simply ask her, but not Glyn. He goes the long route and, because she’s a nurse, pretends he’s having chest pains. Which, like everything in this series, goes horribly wrong for him, via a fear of clowns
and some customised chili con carne.
Meanwhile, Beggsy’s ex-wife Mandy (Lucy Gaskell) — the one who left him to go and live with a new man in Australia — is back in town. So obviously
he’s playing it verrrry cool.
As Glyn gets another year older, he learns that honesty really is the best policy while trying to win Julie's affections, and the lads look forward to his fancy-dress birthday party. However, a long-standing argument between Daz and Hodge threatens to disrupt the occasion. Elsewhere, Beggsy receives a surprise visit from ex-wife Mandy and quickly realises the embers of their relationship are still smouldering.
