    What a excellent comedy series this is. There is no real plot to the stories all it is, is about the regulars of The Grapes Pub most of who are on the bottom run of life and think anyone shopping in Sainsbury’s posh, even if only to buy a Fray Bentos steak and kidney pie.
    There are 2 cops bent as they make them, who sell counterfeit notes and smoke wacky backy.
    It is in it second series which the first I missed but will be looking out for repeats of it.

    Recommended comedy on Mondays at 10pm on BBC2. :smashin: :laugh:

    Have to agree, it's a really addictive comedy! I loved the first series, and the second series (so far) is its equal.

    Great acting, and really good casting. It's hard to put your finger on what makes it so funny, I guess it's similar to The Office and the Royle Family.

    I never got into The Office and have to say Early Doors does not immediately hit you as being funny but I though that of Fawtey Towers the first time I watched it I thought it was a bit silly but after every one raved about it I stuck with the following weeks and it became one of my favourite comedy’s.
    Some of the humour may slip by some folk, like the old bloke who was born and raised in the area when asked if he lived all his life in the area he said “not yet”. And the woman asking what the sign saying Quiz Night no Riff Raff meant, was told by the barmaid “it doesn’t mean you” inferring she was riff raff but she could come that night.

    There isn't a wasted line of dialogue in the entire programme.

    Started off well - in the style of an American series - "Previously on Early Doors"

    "Want a crisp Tommy ?"

    "No."

    All you needed to know about the first Series in five words.

    Yep, classic British comedy. Very much in the style of 'The Royle Family'
    This is one of my favourite shows on TV at the moment. :thumbsup:

    Have to go now as i'm not feeling too well. Mum's going to give me some eggs chopped up in a cup though, so i'll be feeling right as rain in the morning :laugh:

    Different name in end credits but Joan is played by Suranne Jones, she must be, they are like two peas in a pod. :)
