Series 1 - Episode 3

Review

“No one puts Mim in the corner!” Having helped fill favour bags for a family wedding, Mim (a perfect fit for Miriam Margolyes) is incensed that she’s been relegated to the evening reception. And so, still ticking off items on her bucket list, she plans something mischievous and disruptive – while her timid daughter Fran (writer Frog Stone) is terrified about the hen do.

Stone is skilled at lobbing heavyweight questions about life and identity into the freewheeling fun, without ever destroying the atmosphere. And the family snapshot we keep glimpsing hints at a revelation or two next week. After just three episodes, Bucket feels an old friend already.

Mim and Fran head to cousin Pat's house the night before her daughter Gemma's wedding - but things look set to fall apart when the bride reveals she does not want to go through with it. Comedy, starring Miriam Margolyes and Frog Stone, with Stephanie Beacham and Catherine Steadman.
