Gavin & Stacey 9.00pm BBC3
Ruth Jones and James Corden's superb new comedy keeps it nice and simple in its third episode. Gavin's mum throws the titular young lovers (Mathew Horne and Joanna Page) an engagement party; Stacey's family drive over from Wales for it; mild chaos ensues as the families meet. That's it. Complex plots aren't required when your script and cast are this good.
Rob Brydon owns this episode as Stacey's lovably inept Uncle Bryn, who bristles at visiting Essex ("That's tantamount to London!") until he realises it's a chance to try his new satnav - but Alison Steadman runs him close as Gavin's mum, absolutely nailing the waff linq, flapping hysteria of a home-counties hen trying to keep up appearances.
For rookie writers, Jones and Corden are astonishingly assured. This is a delightfully warm, humble work full of minor magic moments. (Jack Seale)
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
