Review: Above Their Station

Does anybody still think jokes about colostomy bags and "jumbo sausages" are funny? Tragically, this is what passes for BBC comedy in 2010.

Arlene Kelly, Suite 101, 26th February 2010

Nobody watches BBC3 comedy pilots with total confidence, and with no preview DVD available, we haven't watched this one at all. But it has pedigree. Rhys Thomas, the straight-man star of Bellamy's People, writes and stars in a studio sitcom about police community support officers who want to be real cops, and who constantly derail investigations they shouldn't even be involved in. Years ago, Thomas had a minor cult hit with Fun at the Funeral Parlour - this sounds broader and more accessible. Look out for Denis Lawson as the chief constable.
