The Pact preview

There are probably funnier shows in this year's batch of BBC comedy pilots, but few as watchable as this.

TV review: The Pact, BBC2

This final BBC Two pilot has success written over it. The stars are Him & Her's Sarah Solemani and sexy, brooding Brett Goldstein as two schoolfriends who make a deal aged 15 that if they are single at 35 they will get together. After the teenage opening we flash forward to the present day. Surely getting a decent romcom out of this basic plot should be a doddle. Apparently not.

Preview - The Pact

The last of BBC Two's run of comedy pilots is a romantic sitcom.

Ian Wolf, On The Box, 27th September 2017

As Britpop-era teens, platonic pals Amy and Andy make a pact: should they both be single at 35, they'll hook up. Two decades later, each finds themself lodged in a romantic rut. Amy is left dangling after a string of unhappy liaisons, her life-goal boxes entirely unticked while Andy is sinking into an unfulfilling relationship and yearning for escape. An underwhelming premise for this comedy pilot, but Sarah Solemani as Amy keeps interest kindled.
