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.

The best season of Benidorm history. The highlight of the series was Selena Griffith's portrayal of Pauline a snobby, stuck up, Posh and a bitch with high standards who funnily enough in episode 4 turns into an alcoholic and just has the audience in fits. They stepped up their game after mels death but the constant references of him get annoying.

The good: Les/Leslie is a good character and in many ways carries the Series. Why? He's likeable and is on some level, intelligent. Benidorm is at its best when its characters are diverse as it struggles when it relentlessly focuses on people's stupidity. So a good character. Other good points, was episode 3,4 & 5. Some brilliant moments, such as the bond between Mateo and Leslie and them dressing up as women for the double date. Elsewhere, Michael and his date was very sweet and Joan Collins was excellent with a little more insight into her character shown. The whole Mr Pink episode, whilst far-fetched was good fun.

The OK: Kenneth. Another stupid character who replaces Troy, who was one of the few relatively bright characters. Therefore, the balance becomes a bit too tilted in favour of 'stupidity'. That said, his relationship with Gavin is good fun and is his opposite nature works well. There's a really good scene with them on a nudist beach. Prudish Gavin isn't impressed!

The bad: Cilla Black in episode one. Pointless and unfunny. It added nothing. The two young women - they added nothing, with one being gobby, irritating and yet unfunny, whilst the other being sweet, but dull. However, the worst character by far was Liam, who's role purely consisted of taking everything literally. He became increasingly irritating, predictable and boring as the Series progressed. Another low point Was Noreen's daughter. Completely unfunny and I just spent the whole time feeling sorry for Noreen as she puts up with her alcohol addiction and snobbery.

The ugly: Donald faking his own death with the aid of Jacqueline. Jacqueline and Donald are seen as eccentric, yet likeable and harmless characters.

I love this series - it is so true to life I cringe sometimes watching it. We have all met at some time characters like this.(Maybe not Donald & Jacqueline!) Very wry observational humour and top class acting.

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 at some of 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 (an actress who I've enjoyed in some of her work) plays an almost pantomime villain in 'Scary Mary', and Cilla Black's cameo as herself in episode one was as pointless as it was embarrassing.
