What do you make of this latest series Chris?

I enjoyed the first few episodes but feel it's really starting to run out of ideas.

Jim and Wilson are always good value though and I gather next week the series ends with the wedding of Grandma and Mr Morris. Which should be an interesting and lively event, to say the least.

Hi Jamie, well the first one of this third series was a real disappointment - a tired retread (there's a pun in there somewhere). But the stuffed fox and the wedding anniversary episodes, were laugh out loud gleeful & excruciating in the best comic way. For me, the grandma & Mr Morris theme hasn't so far gone anywhere quite as good or surprising as the first time they got together in a previous series, but maybe the marriage will. I've also yet to watch last Friday's episode 5 either.
Also almost quite enjoying C4's second series of 'The Mimic', in a low key (not really laugh out loud stuff, but some sort of woeful smiling engaging existential drama going on) way. I thought the first series was ok, & I'm not convinced Series 2 is as good yet, but after just one episode it could still lift off. I can easily imagine many people wouldn't rate it. And yet...

I've heard good things about 'The Mimic' and I gather it's got Neil Maskell in it (reason enough to watch in itself, in my book)
