The Maltby family have a complaint

Brother and sister Geoff and Pauline have a complaint to make to Joyce.

Featuring: Elsie Kelly (Noreen Maltby), Johnny Vegas (The Oracle), Tim Healy (Les / Lesley), Sherrie Hewson (Joyce Temple Savage) & Selina Griffiths (Pauline).


Johnny Vegas interview

If you missed Geoff 'The Oracle' Maltby in last week's series opener of Benidorm , then you'll be pleased to hear he's back this week, and makes quite the entrance.

Radio Times review

A bit of an upturn after last week's opening debacle. The cartoon characters, daft situations and gobbets of innuendo almost coagulate into a palatable whole. Lazy Kenneth learns that he might be inheriting a fortune. Tiger plays tricks on his unfeasibly dim mate Joey. And Mateo demonstrates "first aids" to the Solana staff, including his Heineken manoeuvre should any guests choke on their sausage.

Most promising is that we have a glimpse of the Maltbys en masse, or rather daffy Noreen, her oafish son Geoff (Johnny Vegas) and problem daughter Pauline. All three have never appeared together in the series before and I'm now looking forward to next week.
