Further details

Beth is organising the perfect baby shower for mum-to-be Sophie.

Jaz is sporting a corker of a black eye after a run-in with a packing box, much to the amusement of the neighbours. His day doesn't improve any when he's on the receiving end of a wind-up from Colin who's teasing the boys about them moving in to a less than salubrious area.

Cathy, meanwhile, is worried about being too close to the action if Sophie goes into labour. But even she's moved by the emotional speeches made at the baby shower - including Sophie's when she finally tells her mum about Beth and Eric being godparents.

BBC Two's Two Doors Down has it all. Wit, delight, long awkward silences, burps, bacon-farts. Writers Gregor Sharp and Simon Carlyle have encapsulated a satellite Scottish suburb with joy and finesse: it's crude but it's loving. Most characters are normal. Two are accidental monsters. Cathy (Doon Mackichan) and Christine (Elaine C Smith) dominate every social interaction with that sublime lack of tact that just makes you want to cheer and then put a drunken gun to your head and pull the trigger. Lovely to see Maurice Roƫves back.
