Review

Good news: the wonderful Geoffrey Whitehead is back in the series. He plays the stern, disapproving father of Lee’s flatmate Lucy, just as he played the stern disapproving father in Worst Week of My Life (which starred Ben Miller) – and every bit as well. It’s a shame the script feels more strained than usual as Lucy (Sally Bretton) visits a trade conference to try to pick up new clients – “pick up” being, to Lee’s horror, the name of the game.

How he tries to intervene before she can go too far and how that gets him into trouble with her parents leads us through an enjoyably old-fashioned farce. And Whitehead gets to say the line: “I used to box for Surrey, you know!” as only he can.

Summary

Lucy attends a three-day trade conference to drum up business, but when she has little luck she resorts to flirting with the male delegates. Lee is outraged with her plan, however, and in an attempt to stop her he turns up at the event - posing as her husband. Comedy, starring Lee Mack and Sally Bretton.
