Kiss and kin: Jessica Stevenson, Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash are The Royle Family
The Royle Family
Caroline (Mrs Merton) Aherne's new sitcom is odd. Brave and odd. Set solely in a squalid Manchester flat, it's perhaps closest to Till Death Us Do Part, with no laughter track. Mum (Sue Johnston), Dad (Ricky Tomlinson), daughter Denise (Aherne) and son Antony (Ralf Little) bicker, smoke and watch television. That is their life. Denise's fiancÃ©e appears and breaks wind; her friend Cheryl discusses willies. "Ey, I think I've gorra verruca coming," says Mam.
This is observational dialogue, not about one-liners. The comedy draws from the ridiculous social ineptness and crudeness of the characters, whose lives seem uncomfortably close to reality at times. Theirs is not so much small talk as tiny talk. Watching The Royle Family is like walking into a dirty person's flat. The characters are just so... unhygienic.
