The televisual equivalent of hormone replacement therapy ends this week with one last, daffy spin around the block for the women-only taxi firm.
No actual medical research has been carried out, but having your eyeballs assaulted by this unrelenting, sea of pink for 60 minutes leaves you with the weird compulsion to crack open a bottle of sparkling rose and the feeling that youve gone up at least one cup size. And that goes for any men watching too. (Are there any men watching?)
In the final instalment, Jackie and Elaine (Jo Joyner and Lisa Millett) are fighting off claims that Candy Cabs is sexist. (Thats the firm, not the entire series, in case you were wondering). Surely not! How can an office where the women strip off to their undies every week for their weekly Fat Club weigh-ins and the men are either totty or Neanderthals possibly be considered sexist?
The firms future depends on a tense court hearing although they really missed a trick in not getting Elle from Legally Blonde to represent them.
Fans will be pleased to know that it ends with the passenger door left wide open for a possible follow-up.Jane Simon, The Mirror, 19th April 2011
Playing the magnificently named Jackie O'Sullivan, EastEnders star Jo Joyner's northern accent doesn't get past North London. 'Appen it's Tanya.
Just horrible. Is this what BBC drama has come to?

Candy Cabs is a big mess of hair, nails and shocking pink. But when you consider the message this programme is sending out, it's not only the pink that is shocking.Rachel Tarley, Metro, 13th April 2011
