Hebburn
« on: Oct 23, 2012, 09:13 »
This started last week. I thought it was pretty good, with some decent belly laughs. It's like a North East version of Gavin & Stacey. Next episode is on BBC2 this thursday night.



Hebburn is a warm and affectionate tale of north east family life. It tells the tale of the Pearson family and their impetuous and ambitious son, Jack, who has left Tyneside for the bright lights and glamour of Manchester. He has secretly married a middle class Jewish girl, Sarah, and realises that it is about time he introduced her to his family.

Jim Moir (aka Vic Reeves) and Gina McKee play Jason's parents, Joe and Pauline, who are devoted to their family and their hometown.

Jan Ravens and Phil Nice star as Sarah's parents, Susan and Ben, who have to contend with their daughter marrying into a family from a very different background.

Other characters include Jack's fun-loving sister Vicki; his Grandmother, Dot, who likes to keep everyone 'up to speed' on her bowel movements; Sarah's hippy sister, Marial; Jack's 'larger than life' friend, Big Keith; and Vicki's best friend, Denise and her boyfriend Gervaise.

Writer Jason Cook also stars in the series as 'Ramsey', a friend of Jack.

The second episode aired last night, but it wasn't as good as the first one. Still amusing in places though.

Now read that the BBC haven't commissioned a 3rd series, but there's discussions with the scriptwriters to take it to America. Apparently they're going to set it in Pittsburgh.
