Episode 5: Party Pieces

Summary

The Bairds and Whytes arrive home from a pub quiz at which they only came third, mocking the winners for taking it far too seriously - though Beth reminds him they were raising money for charity. As the night progresses everyone is encouraged to do their party piece, with Eric making a £20 note disappear, Colin imitates Sean Connery and while Cathy is very bendy it emerges that Gordon is not quite as agile as everyone expected.

Review

One of the joys of this hilarious series (similarly Lesley Manville in Mum) is that Beth (Arabella Weir) remains serenely accommodating in the face of her family and neighbours’ demands and downright rudeness. Tonight, after a mildly successful quiz night out, she’s topping up everyone’s glasses yet again and even has to put on her chip pan.

We’re treated to the regulars’ party pieces, Ian and Gordon deal with the aftermath of a transgression in a gay bar, Amsterdam gets a drubbing and Christine (the shriekingly funny Elaine C Smith) asserts that Louis Armstrong was the first man on the moon.
