This may be the best series yet, as the episodes become more daring and inventive. As it reaches it's 100th episode, it retains all of the situation humour that has kept it going for the past nine years. In this series, Ben encounters a bully from years ago, Susan considers running away with a man she has met on holiday (guest John Barrowman), Michael appears to have become psychotic, and Alfie reveals how Blackberry Schnapps had him thrown out of his home village. The one letdown of the series was Janey, whose storylines revolve on the same, monotonous joke of her dating 10 men at the same time-can't the writers come up with something different? Roger is much funnier than he used to be, possibly because of Abi's absence, which to be honest, was long overdue.Having seriously slumped at around series six, the series has thankfully progressively picked itself back up. This sitcom will probably continue for many years to come, and if it remains this high quality, long may it!
