Benidorm: like an embarrassing uncle stuck in the 1970s

Farts, innuendo and a little light racism ... it's an all-inclusive mess.

Sam Wollaston, The Guardian, 26th January 2016

Radio Times review

"Only two types of people ever come to Benidorm. Those who never come again and those who never want to leave," says one character here. It pertains as much to the show as to its setting, but even for die-hard devotees of the sitcom's trademark vulgarity, this episode feels strained.

Daft arcs include an unwelcome renovation to the Blow & Go salon and an altercation with a biker gang for Tiger and Joey, while Joyce (Sherrie Hewson) is usurped at a property auction. Promisingly, though, the Maltbys are back together again. Led by the loutish Geoff (Johnny Vegas), there might just be hope that there's life in the old dog yet.

Sarah Carson, Radio Times, 19th January 2016
