Review

Adam and Karen’s newly blended family isn’t exactly The Brady Bunch. Adam, in particular, is annoyed about the lack of semi-skimmed in the fridge and the queue for the bathroom. To which I immediately thought, “Well, surely Karen would be the type to have a selection of milk alternatives and a bedroom with an en suite?” Adam, though, decides to draw up a rota of chores – although his own absence in the washing-up column is quickly criticised. Again, though, this is Karen’s house – where’s the dishwasher?

Over at the Giffords’, we have Pete taking the prospect of jury duty very seriously. And indeed, once he gets to the courtroom, we get to witness this One Angry Man in action. He’s also taking charge when it comes to healing the rift between Adam and David. “It’s like trying to get Oasis to re-form,” he complains as the two former friends give each other evils across a table at one of those elegant, upmarket Manchester bars we’d all secretly like to have as our local pub.

Summary

Adam and Karen's new living arrangements cause chaos for the family when an unexpected visitor tips them over the edge. Elsewhere, David embraces his new role, but faces humiliation from a former adversary, while Pete's time on a jury has unexpected consequences for Adam. John Thomson, James Nesbitt, Fay Ripley, Hermione Norris and Robert Bathurst star in Mike Bullen's long-running comedy drama, with guest appearances by Gemma Jones, Clare Keelan and Sunetra Sarker.
