Series 2 - Episode 5 Nana's Party

Review

The praise lavished upon this anthology series from viewers and TV critics alike is justly deserved, and this episode is another cracker. In Nana’s Party, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith (writing and directing) play prankster brothers-in-law who, with their wives (Claire Skinner as an OCD mum and Lorraine Ashbourne as her alcoholic sister), gather for Maggie’s 79th birthday. Cue another delightfully ditsy turn from Benidorm’s Elsie Kelly.

The half-hour unfolds like a micro-packaged Mike Leigh drama, with finely judged performances as secrets and lies are exposed in cosy suburbia. All it’s lacking is Timothy Spall grunting.

Summary

It's Nana's 79th birthday and she's excited about spending the afternoon with her whole family - even Pat and Jim, who both love a practical joke. Her daughter Angela has put on a lovely spread for the party, including a huge cake, but events take an unexpected turn. Comedy written, directed by and starring Steve Pembroke and Reece Shearsmith, with Claire Skinner and Elsie Kelly.
