Quick Cuts

BBC Four sitcom. 3 episodes (1 series) in 2013. Stars Doon Mackichan, Paul Reynolds, Jessica Gunning, O-T Fagbenle, Jane Dowden and Lucinda Dryzek.

Series 1, Episode 1

Having thrown Trev out, Sue swallows a handful of a customer's internet-ordered pills to help deal with her stress... and turn her wee blue. Meanwhile, Gav seems to have lost his credit card, and Becky's under suspicion.

Further details

Sue chucks Trevor out, Marianne is choosing boobs, Gavin is sick on a pigeon, Becky is stalking her lover and Annie has a blind date with someone with an unusual problem.

Trying to juggle all these problems and a shop full of customers is not easy for Sue, especially when a giant chipmunk wearing a fez and holding an axe shows up.
