Series 6 - Episode 6 Play



Lucy’s strait-laced parents arrive from their local amateur dramatic group, and they need actors for a new production. It sounds terrible, with a villain described as an “evil, impotent, wart-ridden narcissist”. Naturally Lee (Lee Mack) is everyone’s first casting choice.

After too many so-so episodes Not Going Out slides back onto its well-worn tracks with an increased quotient of funny gags, though you’ll see most of them telegraphed from about five miles away. Mack is great as he froths with jealousy at Lucy’s insufferable leading man.


Lucy's first love reappears on the scene and asks her to star in a play he has written especially for her. But Lee refuses to take it lying down and decides to fight for his flatmate's attention. Lee Mack and Sally Bretton star, with a guest appearance by Simon Farnaby (Horrible Histories).
