Everybody in it is excellent but Emma Wray has to be singled out for her performance as Brenda. Her character is so central to the whole storyline and to find that balance of being so infuriating and yet so endearing is an achievement. Her disappearance from our screens has been a great loss.
Possibly in this series the tone swings towards the story and away from the comedy situations as Malcolm and Brenda's relationship falls apart (yet again). If you are caught up in the story, then the scenes where Brenda's sadness at losing Malcolm is revealed in full (i.e. the RSPB mug scene and the one as Malcolm and Lucinda leave the church) will certainly move you.
If I have one criticism it is that the quality of the recordings is not of the highest standard. But the strength of the writing and the acting far outweigh this.
I really felt for Brenda when she did not get to the Church in time to stop Malcolm marrying Lucinda, even though you could see the spark was still there between them both.
I have already orderes series 6 & 7 and cant wait to watch then, the only downside is no more after series 7
This is a must for all watching fans.
