This Episode

Tim’s bicycle courier friend Tyres (Michael Smiley) pops round for a cup of tea and decides to take the gang clubbing, forcing Brian to relive a terrible event in his past (where a spilled drink during Dexys Midnight RunnersCome On Eileen had disastrous results). Mike, thrown out of the Rough Ramblers following a disastrous eskimo roll (which was more a case of ‘rolling right Inuit‘), rediscovers his manhood with the help of some ecstasy[citation needed] and a remix of The A-Team theme. And Tim and Daisy have their eyes opened.

Supporting roles include Nick Frost as Tim’s best friend Mike, Katy Carmichael as Daisy’s best friend Twist, Mark Heap as lodger Brian who lives downstairs and Julia Deakin as landlady Marsha.

The first series of the show, comprising seven episodes, premiered in the UK on Channel 4 24 September 1999, and the second and final series, also consisting of seven episodes, premiered on 23 February 2001 before concluding on 13 April, with the final episode of the second series also serving as the series finale.
