TV Review: Peter Kay's Car Share, The Finale, BBC1

Well that was about as soppy as everyone expected Peter Kay's very last Car Share to be.

I did wonder for a moment if there was going to be an awful accident because John (Peter Kay) kept glancing at his phone or looking at Kayleigh (Sian Gibson). And in fact the episode did feature a smash, but not in the way I expected. It was caused by Kayleigh getting out of the car to save a hedgehog, causing the car behind to swerve and prang and then for the door of John's Fiat to be sliced off by a passing truck.

TV: Peter Kay's Car Share, Episode Two, BBC1/iPlayer

I’m not sure whether this should be billed as a preview or a review. At the time of writing the second episode of Peter Kay’s Car Share has not been broadcast, but judging by the Ed Sheeran-style record-breaking success of the four-part series box set on iPlayer I expect a lot of people reading this will have already seen the second episode. And the third and the fourth. I’m still keeping it old school and resisting a binge.
