David Troughton

Second series for the agreeable, whimsical seaside drama written by Michelle Terry and Ralph Little. Sarah (Terry) is still single and wiping tables with a faraway look in her eyes, while her nan tweets Rio Ferdinand. Cyril has taken on a community service helper down at the allotment, and Richard has news that causes Sarah to fixate pensively on the steam rising from the tea urn. It's not new but it is ever so nicely done. And any show containing the never-anything-less-than-flawless David Troughton (as Cyril) just wins the television.
