That rest he keeps mentioning in his blog never seems to happen does it?

Summary doesn't exactly grab me, but it is largely irrelevant considering the cast :wink:

A little bit of Reece at Christmas :D

Its written by the team who created 'The Worst Week of My Life' series...

The words ITV1 always make me wary but the cast is very, very good so hopefully...

Do you think there will inevitably be comparisons to Fawlty Towers?

But I'm living in hope of another brilliant performance by Reece to match the one in Catterick! I really did think he was wonderful in that. Perfect casting.

My gut feeling tells me it'll be a bit TLC. I'm holding out for The Cottage to be his masterwork!

It's a pretty lazy comparison.

A better one would be to call it TLC at a seaside hotel? But that's no bad thing. ;)

So this is on tomorrow so I went in to sky tv guide to set a reminder for it.
And guess what? scottish ITV aren't showing it! They have some b*llocks about christmas on stv.
Luckily we can get ITV 1 london on sky so I can still watch it but you other scottish ladies might miss out :(
