Episode 1: Burns Supper

Summary

Cathy, Colin, Ian and Gordon head to Eric and Beth to celebrate Burns Night, and everyone is surprised when Christine turns up - back early from visiting daughter Sophie in north Wales and full of complaints about the trip. Colin's mention of ex-girlfriend Yvonne sets Cathy's blood boiling, while not all the guests are enthusiastic about eating haggis, least of all vegetarian Gordon. Comedy, starring Arabella Weir, Alex Norton, Doon Mackichan, Jonathan Watson and Elaine C Smith

Review

Two Doors Down returns for a new series with the same comically fertile theme: suburban Glaswegians Beth and Eric (Arabella Weir and Alex Norton) offer hospitality to their nightmare neighbours and in return get judged and slighted. It would be a slender basis for a sitcom if all the performances weren’t so note-perfect.

Doon MacKichan is on good form tonight as self-dramatising Cathy, who manages to ruin (almost) a Burns Night supper by taking exception when her other half dares to mention his ex. Meanwhile, sour grump Christine (Elaine C Smith) doesn’t think much of Beth’s redecorated loo: “Same silly wee sink, I see,” is as good as it gets.
