A true ensemble....
on 5 July 2015
I'm a long time fan of David Walliams - and in saying that you may think this review is a tad biased. Rather, this series shows why I love David Walliams' work - he continues to mature and progress through his career.
In this series, his character is a shy, naive, full-on-straight guy who has a crush on the French teacher. And though there is potty humour, it is kept at a minimum and fits the story line, it does not feel like it is thrown in for a laugh. (Sexual innuendos? Well, they're par for the course nowadays but are in no way offensive.)
The casting is fantastic - a true ensemble - and though most of the stars are brilliant in their own right, not one of them comes across as the star of the show. I've not seen Philip Glenister in a comedy like this and was surprised at how well he pulled it off.
I thought Series 2 worked just as well and so would suggest purchasing that DVD, as well....
