Accidentally killing your boyfriend's pet

Lauren forgets to feed JJ's pet tortoise Bertie while he's away, but by the time she realises it's already too late!

Featuring: Daniel Lawrence Taylor (Nick), Kadiff Kirwan (Jason), Adelayo Adedayo (Lauren), Oliver Wellington (JJ) & Patrick Baladi (Jonty).


Series two of this silly but sharp sitcom ends in chaos, with the KGB on the hunt for the time machine that's taken a gang of Peckham pals back to the 1950s. Meanwhile, Caribbean immigrants are fighting a racist landlord. Setting these episodes at the dawn of the Windrush era was surely not an accident.

Jack Seale, The Guardian, 8th April 2019
