Press Clippings

A grand return for Two Doors Down, and Christine, the peerless Elaine C Smith, had made a trifle for Eric and Beth's 30th anniversary. She had toyed, though not that hard, with thoughts of a gift. "Some porcelain... a voucher? But then I went into my cupboard. I saw the four tins of fruit cocktail. And ah just thought: fuck it. Trifle it is!" It is a... decent enough... trifle, the gloss on which is only mildly spoilt by Christine's rare sotto voce warning. "Don't take too long. Cos technically that cream needs to be used by midnight..."

Every piece of Scottishness, beloved or nauseating (Doon Mackichan's monstrously indiscreet Cathy) is here, and balances Rob and Sharon's London [from Catastrophe] with perfection.

British Comedy Guide, 7th March 2018

The gang leave home for a real-time episode focused entirely on Beth's birthday meal: nothing fancy, it's just a pub that does two courses for £7.95, but the gatecrashing of the event by Christine (insensitive) and Colin (hammered) ensures it's a gentle fiasco. Basic but reliably decent sitcom fare.
