Tom Davis's comedy of manners comes to its end after a somewhat predictable but nonetheless entertaining first series. Finally out of the suburbs and taking a holiday at the British seaside, Gary (Davis) has his plans for a quiet family getaway scuppered by wife Terri's plans to make holiday friends with a glamorous French couple. Meanwhile, Big Gary is on the hunt for the fabled pasty he had when he last visited decades ago, but can't remember where the shop is. A much-needed dose of summer.Ammar Kalia, The Guardian, 14th February 2020
