Product Description

Product Description

White Van Man is a knockabout comedy sitcom with a warm heart about a reluctant handyman. Ollie is an aspiring restaurateur whose dreams are dashed when his father suffers a heart attack and he has to take over the family painting and decorating business. The story follows the enthusiastic Ollie who, along with his disastrous co-worker, encounters comedy chaos behind each of their customers' front doors.

Episodes

Ollie's First Day
Giving up dreams of running his own restaurant, Ollie has taken over the handyman business from his ailing dad, Tony (Clive Mantle, Vicar of Dibley). His first day on the job, Ollie quickly finds himself out of his depth, driven up the wall by his incorrigible assistant Darren (Joel Fry, The Impressions Show) and alienating every client he works for, even getting embroiled in a paternity case. In the midst of it all he runs into an old crush, Emma (Georgia Moffett, Dr Who) and what with everything on his plate, he manages to make an utter fool of himself in front of her.

Turf
Ollie decides it’s time to modernise the family business and kicks into marketing overdrive to promote Curry & Sons Home Maintenance. His flyering campaign starts bringing in trade nicely but little does he know they are ruffling some shady feathers. Things really kick up a gear when he discovers that Darren has been up all night playing violent online games with a web designer called Kat (Joanna Page, Gavin & Stacey).

The Stand
When Jeremy (Rufus Wright, Quantum of Solace) refuses to pay the full amount for a bathroom fitting, Ollie blocks his driveway with the van, refusing to move unless Jeremy coughs up the full amount. This act of rebellion starts to get the attention of the local community. Meanwhile Darren breaks his friend Irene (Deddie Davies, The Catherine Tate Show) out of an old people’s home and promptly loses her.

The Morning After
Darren wakes up with a dreadful hangover next a beautiful naked woman with no clue as to how he got there. When he sneaks out he finds Ollie about to knock at the front door ready for their day’s work fitting a fireplace in the very house Darren was trying to leave. Meanwhile Emma finds herself in serious trouble with her financier, Ian (Dexter Fletcher, Hotel Babylon).

Honest
When Ollie finds his dad trying to rustle up work in a suspect manner, he decides to draw a line make sure the business runs by the book from now on. Almost immediately Emma convinces him to break into an estate agents for her with the help of the local burglar Ricky (Blake Harrison, The Inbetweeners). Meanwhile Darren attempts to swap a blind woman’s sofa with one he stained at his brother’s flat.

Beginnings and Ends
Something is up with Ollie. He and Darren are building a wardrobe for Albert (Brian Murphy, George and Mildred) in a small room and tempers begin to flare. Before long it seems everyone Ollie knows is revealing secrets, leaving him with a big decision to make.

A lot of people know Will Mellor from Two Pints. In this series he gets his own show. The intention is, I think, to create a very gentle, family-friendly comedy. The programme is watchable enough, but I'm afraid it's not particularly funny.

I bought this, along with Series 2, as a present for my husband for his birthday. He is an avid fan of this show and we are both gutted there are only 2 series!

Both DVD's arrived 2 days, both perfectly wrapped, no issues at all.

We really wish White Van Man continued for more than 2 series, however being able to buy these on DVD is good enough for us :)

What a refreshing comedy. I watched both series when it was shown on TV and enjoyed both. I suggest that if you have not seen it previously that you watch series 1 first to gain understanding of where each character fits in the storyline. Good clean fun without the crudity that many comedies seem to have to include these days.

I had only seen a very brief bit of this show but bought the DVD for my son's 15th birthday. He watched it the first time wearing headphones but laughed continuously. Since then we have all watched it ....and it takes a lot to make me laugh but this is really funny. Will Mellor is great!

I absolutely loved this first series of White Van Man and sincerely hope that there's a follow up series. Ollie is such a likeable fellow and as for his off-sider Darren, well! Darren reminds me so much in many ways of Jeremy from Peep show. Equally bone idol and unwilling to do any real work. You know the sort. The ones that expect everyone else to graft but are not actually interested in offering real assistance and we all know people like that. I understand that the BBC has decided to axe White Van Man which is extremely disappointing especially as the final episode ended with the possibility of more to come. Come on Aunty. This is a series that should be pursued.

The title doesn't suggest at some of the depth in this charming and funny series. Don't make an assumption on the casting of Will Mellor, I'd put this show closer to Lead Balloon than Two Pints of Lager and his acting is excellent. It's also a must for anyone who has taken over the family business.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this. I bought it as I'm a fan of Joel Fry (who plays Darren) and had missed the series, but I'm not a Two Pints fan. But it's nothing like Two Pints - it really is brilliant - warm, charming and hysterically funny.
