Mum

TV: Mum, BBC2

In the third and final series of Mum, beautifully written and directed by Stefan Golaszewski, Cathy and co are well and truly out of their suburban comfort zone, as they go to stay with Pauline (Dorothy Atkinson) and her hen-pecked partner Derek (Ross Boatman) who have rented an ultra swish country house for the week.

Opinion: When Bad Sitcoms Turn Good

Every time a new series of Benidorm starts I watch the first episode. I like to have an open mind and I like to think that maybe this time it'll become my favourite show. But no it doesn't. Rigid? me? But in the last week there have been a couple of sitcoms where I've had to do a critical u-turn.

TV: Mum, BBC2

The first series of Mum found saintly Cathy (Lesley Manville) mourning the death of her husband and dealing with her, erm, colourful family. The second series starts with a marginally lighter issue. She is about to turn sixty and also has her Essex family descending on her en masse.

TV Review: Mum, Episode 6, Final Episode, BBC2

Well, we say final episode but as anyone who has been following this brilliant series by Stefan Golaszewski will probably know by now there is going to be a second series. A good decision from the BBC, flying the flag for a quality comedy that may not be laugh a minute but has bags of nuance and excellent performances from its ensemble cast.

TV Review, Mum, BBC2

I know the second episode went out a few days ago but I just wanted to flag up this new BBC2 sitcom again. It is so subtle and unassuming it risks getting lost between loads of other noisier, more attention-grabbing shows. This is a beautiful little thing following a year in the life of a middle-aged widow, written by Stefan Golaszewski, who previously wrote Him & Her.
