TV Review: The Cockfields, Episode Three, Gold

Note - for those that haven't seen the final episode yet this does contain spoilers...


This has been a real gem. It's a shame it is only a trilogy, but in those three episodes we have really got to know the Cockfield clan. Yes, they might be a bunch of Isle of Wight oddballs, but they are – mostly – a bunch of very sympathetic, engaging Isle of Wight oddballs.


TV Review: The Cockfields, Episode Two, Gold

There were no major dramas in the first instalment of this three-part comedy and there are none in the gloriously mundane second part either. Unless you count a minor altercation with a neighbour (Dan Renton Skinner) about a hedge.


TV Review: The Cockfields, Gold

In David Baddiel's new play God's Dice the lead character talks about infinite parrallel universes. If this is the case then there must be a universe where Joe Wilkinson is the superstar host of an American chat show, just like James Corden is in this universe. And Wilkinson is part of the way there here. There is a definite Gavin and Stacey vibe to three-part comedy The Cockfields, which is set on the Isle of Wight rather than South Wales.
