I didn't start watching Benidorm until the christmas special was on tv,but ever since then i have watched and bought all the series,the reason i love this show is everytime i watch it i laugh and on ocassions have cried,very sad when mel died,there isn't many programmes that make me laugh everytime i watch them and believe me i watch this alot and never get bored with it,Derren Litten the writer is brilliant and i hope he continues with this series,i loved Johnny Vegas in it,the only character i didn't like was Liam,when series 4 started i couldnt get into it mainly because it had changed with new characters,i cant wait for this to come out on dvd and series 5 and 6 and 7........

Having enjoyed series 1 to 3 of Benidorm I looked forward to series 4, but oh, what a disappointment! Half of the cast had obviously bailed out after series 3 and the newcomers were about as funny as toothache.
Liam, the son of (Les/Lesley) was depicted by the script as being slow and dimwitted. He was irritating, unfunny and a pain in the neck.
Natalie and Sam, the two new girls in the series, were only two dimential characters who added nothing new or interesting to the episodes.
Pauline, the sister of Geoff, seemed to be permanently drunk throughout and was another character who failed to instill anything funny into the series.
Kenneth, a colleague of Troy and Gavin, was just another unsuitable stand in for Troy.
The Garvey's held the whole thing together but even they sounded jaded and repetitive.
Series 5 will require more imagination from the writer and more talent from the actors.

Another wonderful series of the Sunshine Sit-com starring the talent of Steve Pemberton , Hugh Sachs and Jake Canuso. Sunny escapism at it's finest.

When I first started to watch Benidorm, I was not certain about it, but watching it again, it is excellent with great characters. Series 4, where the episodes are longer, and with new characters, is every bit as good.

Having watched the first three series and enjoying them, I was bitterly dissapointed in series 4. The new characters were not very good especially Liam who I grew to hate more every time I looked at him. All in all pretty bad.

I'm a real fan of 'Benidorm', and have enjoyed it enormously since the start, but series 4 really is a low point. Sure, it's still funnier than a lot of sitcoms out there (just look as those one series runners on the BBC3 channel) but considering the high standards of the show in the past, it's a disappointing series overall.

These six episodes were first broadcast on ITV in 2011, and favourites such as Troy, Martin and Kate, Johnny Vegas' character Geoff and his new (much younger) girlfriend Chantelle do not appear. As a result, new characters were brought in to fill in the gaps, but they just aren't on the right-side of likeable. The expectation though is Tim Healey, who fits into the show brilliantly. Tim had previously guest appeared in series 3, and now his transvestite character has become a permanent fixture. His teenage son Liam (Adam Gillen) also appears in tow, and the character is too daft to laugh at in my opinion, and extremely annoying. With Troy looking after his ill father, Gavin now has a new companion in the equally camp Kenneth (Tony Maudsley) and again, I have never warmed to him. The wonderfully dotty Noreen now has a daughter in short-tempered Pauline (Pauline Maltby) who occasionally provides a few laughs, and there are two new girls visiting 'Benidorm', Natalie (Kathryn Drysdale) and Sam (Shelley Longworth), both out for a good time. These two characters had potential, but were under used and not well written for.

In short, a pale imitation of a show that was always wickedly funny. Even the guest stars aren't much good, Tim Healey's wife Denise Welch plays an almost pantomime villain in 'Scary Mary', and Cilla Black's cameo as herself in episode one was cheesy and embarrassing. Evan a writer as good as Derren Litten can have it's off days, because his scripts here are often to silly. There's still laughs to be had throughout, but it isn't the old 'Benidorm' the nation quickly came to love.
