User Reviews

a unique series about life on the "frontier"
11 July 2003 | by orangecatdancingSee all my reviews

"Quirky" is the best way to describe what is a typically British comedy about life in the Cornwall town of St Gweep. Cornwall is Daphne Du Maurier country, and the cinematography enhances the bleak, stony seascape that affects the mood of the town's inhabitants who are simultaneously dour and lovable. There is no ongoing plot so to speak, each episode chronicles one incident in the week of the town - whether it is a shipwreck that washes Tupperware up on the beach or a power strike that leaves the one character with a generator to capitalize upon the situation. Dawn French and Catherine Tate are excellent in their roles of the understated lesbian shopkeepers, and Anne-Marie Duff is hilarious as the proprietor of the local witchcraft museum. I really hope there is a second series.
