Early doors, classic comedy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Early Doors - Series 1 & 2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
If you are from Manchester as I am you will probably relate to the characters better, I wanted both series as I did not manage to watch all of the episodes initially, Written by Craig Cash and Phil Mealey (Directed by Adrian Shergold)this is excellent comedy creating what I think is a brilliant piece of work, the characters really make this work, Tommy is not unique, I bet there is a miserable old bugger like Tommy in every old pub.
Timing is everything in shows like this and it doesn't disappoint, Ken is a true publican and a brilliant actor, the policemen Nige and Phil laughing sets me off, Eddie and Joan are wonderful and perfect partners for the show as is Joe and Duffy real Northern "jack the lads" and head up the cast brilliantly.
Slight downside is the pace could have been better in some episodes and a bit repetitive at times, overall though a gem of a comedy series, full of real life and colourful Northern characters, just enjoying a pint and making us laugh, lets have some more Early doors please!
Righto! I am off for a beer and a lock in, and yes you guessed, I am on me own thanks.
