Kevin McNally has to step into some big shoes in this one off remake of the lost episode of Hancock's Half Hour.

Just like the Till Death Do Us Part remake the set is minimal and stage bound. McNally relishes and dives into his Hancock as he spies on his new neighbour from behind the curtains and he certainly is behaving strangely at night carrying what looks like bodies from his new home.

In fact he goes to see the letting agent run by the spiv like Sid James and assisted by Kenneth Williams (actor Robin Sebastian is a sublime Kenneth Williams) to find out more about this neighbour.

The only let down was Katy Wix who never gave me the Hattie Jacques vibe.

I remember watching repeats of Hancock's Half Hour in the mid 1980s and this certainly was a better recreation of a lost episode than the previous week's Alf Garnett saga.
