Filming of Two Doors Down moved after neighbour bust-up

Telly chiefs had to move the filming of hit BBC sitcom Two Doors Down -- after a furious bust-up with a real-life neighbour. Alistair Pollard, 46, hurled abuse at production staff over noise in Bishopbriggs, near Glasgow.

TV Review: Two Doors Down

Certainly, the jokes in this fourth series are easier to see coming than before, but by this stage in the game the comedy is coming more from the characters than the situation.

Alison Rowat, The Herald, 22nd January 2019

Beth pays Christine a post-op visit, but is surprised to discover the operation has been postponed to the following morning. "I thought you were sleeping off the anaesthetic!" "No, I'm sleeping off the steak pie I had for dinner." As the big day looms, the neighbours tactfully discuss her chances round her bedside.

Ali Catterall, The Guardian, 21st January 2019

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.
