Review

Sky’s Little Crackers are something to look forward to each Christmas, and this series of shorts, all supposedly set in the same part of south London, has a similar feel. First, Charles Dance plays Floyd, an ageing rocker living with his uptight daughter. From a promising beginning – Floyd describing the death of Mama Cass to a class of primary school-children – it descends into cliché. Much better is Jessica Hynes’s offbeat tale of quirky Tory councillor Patricia David. With a shock of wild, blonde hair, Hynes is virtually unrecognisable – though you may detect a touch of Boris Johnson about her portrayal.

Summary

The first of 10 comedy shorts set in the same south London location. Retired tour manager Floyd is flamboyant, free-spirited and still living the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. He proves to be more than a handful for his uptight daughter Becky and her husband Jack, especially when their daughter wants to attend a music festival. Starring Charles Dance, Amelia Bullmore and Hugo Speer.
