Radio Times review

Unlike the opening two episodes in this third series, The Cruise isn't interested in being clever, satirical or postmodern (not that there's anything wrong in that); instead it aims for straightforward, old-fashioned laughs - and gets them fairly efficiently.

Jane Horrocks plays Jacky, a suburban hairdresser with bedroom decor so twee that her face dissolves chameleon-like against the peachy wallpaper. Jacky wants husband Andy to join her on a cruise. Andy is, at best, lukewarm about the idea. Is his reluctance hiding something? Will Jacky get her cruise? Frankly, you won't much care, but this is still a likeable, if predictable, little Britcom.

What I see in the mirror: Jane Horrocks

'I turned 50 this year and I don't feel brilliant about it. I don't have many people telling me I look good at the moment'.
