The second of the new Comedy Playhouse season is written by The Royle Family's Craig Cash and Phil Mealey. Five seemingly disparate groups of people discuss their lives to camera, including Brenda and Roger, who run the "Brenroger" B&B, elderly couple Milton and Pearl, fixated with their smoke alarm, and brothers Martin and Tom. It's Alan Bennett with more swearing and a decent cast (Timothy West, Alison Steadman), but ultimately not quite as touching, clever or as funny as it thinks it is.

Radio Times review

Our favourite booming buffoon has landed a part in a West End play called Man of Sex by Gaviscon Kerchief. Also appearing is Toast's nemesis Ray ("bloody") Purchase, and worse, Ray's albino twin Bill has turned up in London looking to make trouble. It's a perfect storm for our man, but at least he has the consolation of a new girlfriend, though the fact she's a doctor of drumming is proving troublesome.

It doesn't add up to a vintage Toast plot but there are incidental pleasures, like Timothy West in a cameo as an old-school actor with a drink problem, and Toast's opening humiliation at the voiceover studio is a new low: he's made to do sound effects.
