Episode 2: Evil Under The Bun

Summary

A turf war between two bakers leads to food poisoning at an amateur dramatic society. Guest starring Paul Whitehouse, Steve Edge, Layton Williams, Jason Barnett and Olivia Nakintu

Review

There’s a major crime that detectives Gemma and Terry (Sian Gibson and Johnny Vegas) are overlooking in this series, and that’s the Exaggerated Northern Accents its guest stars keep using. I get it, guys. You think flat vowels are funny. But there’s really no call for Paul Whitehouse and Jason Barnett to go so over the top that they make Wally Batty sound like Brian Sewell. 
The pair (Paul and Jason, not Wally and Brian) are playing rival bakers who are sponsoring a local am-dram production of Romeo and Juliet, yet when the cast starts keeling over, it’s the sweet and savoury snacks that are discovered to be doctored. But ’oo the ’eck is really responsible?
