Of course, if you read my earlier post, I haven't taken the train at Stockport until 1973 = they still had daily trains to Stalybridge back then,,,,
Apologies - skimmed the thread.

Comedy writers & writers in general misjudge the public's mood re animals - people love their pets.

What's the verdict? I chose to watch Big Brother instead but thought I'd check opinions before watching it on itvplayer

Shame Summer's been given the bum's rush, tone her down a bit and she could have been kept in to give people the irrit.

Only watched this for herself from Pulling, but she's lost weight an isn't playing Louise from Pulling, unlikely I'll be back for that reason.

I somehow think she'll be back.

I caught up with the show on +1 after Big Brother and really enjoyed it; the scenario seemed real and the comedy generally felt natural. I'll be watching it again.

Nobody has said it yet. But

1 guy is the probation worker from Misfits \ copper from Line Of Duty
1 guy is the "generic" bad guy who has been on Good Cop \ Accused
1 guy is "Jez" from Corrie
1 guy is "a guy" from Waterloo Road

Not watched it yet ... but I recognised all the different faces. ... That is all

The tall chap with the glasses, played by Craig Parkinson, was the reverend in The Secret of Crickley Hall.

And 'her' from 'Early Doors'.
The Lovely Melanie

Why do people insist on saying the "train station" - it's an Americanism. In our English, it's the "railway station". Noticed that in "Privates" the other day. In 1960, there's no way an English person would have said the train station....Soz for the rant - just annoys me!!
You go to the bus station to catch a bus. You go to the coach station to catch a coach. You go to the train station to catch a train. You don't go to catch a railway.

Quite enjoyed that overall. Nothing to shout about, but will keep watching.
Same here

I still haven't watched that yet, sat on hd gathering dust.
Nice to see the actor doing something a bit different, associate him with coppers/villains or unpleasant characters.

I'm with you on the Train station thing too.

My girlfriend said she was in Phoenix Nights, the barmaid that wasn't Mary. I didnt think it could be because she looked to old but PN was over 10 years ago!

Still laughing at "I'm getting the word...nonce"

I really enjoyed this! A lot of it made me smile - is Fireman Sam gay? and when they put the drunk man on the train, then had to go back and get him as they realised he was about to get married! Also I found the overbearing female friend really funny!

All the characters are really likeable. A show perfect for Friday night - I'm looking forward to next week

I quite liked it.
One of the women reminded me of Holly Willoughby.
I recognised the bloke from the "When The Whistle Blows" sitcom in Extras, and the woman from Phoenix Nights, and of course Clinton Baptiste from Phoenix Nights.

Of course. I was trying to think where I'd seen her before.

I enjoyed this, especially since I live near Stockport and Manchester. I'll be watching again next week.

I think all the London trains that stop at Stockport also stop at Macc - but Aggie would need to confirm...
Didn't the inspector say they could only stop at Macc if there was an outbreak of violence or a fire or something?

Nah, I can picture both barmaids and she's neither of them.
It's probably something Peter Kay or Craig Cash related.

We'll leave this one hanging in the air 'don't phone in, it's just for fun'

Thank goodness. After reading here I thought I must have watched something else. I recommended it to my friend, I just asked her what she thought because most people on here thought it was good, she just told me she switched it off after ten minutes.
