BBC sneaks out mild comedy drama

Well, bringing out a new series one week before Christmas hardly suggests they expect great things - audiences will meander away, schedules will be disrupted - but that's a bit of a shame, because I've certainly seen worse material than Chopratown.

It's in the tradition of mild comedy dramas so beloved by British TV, but there is something refreshing about watching something where ethnic diversity is evident rather than hidden. And for the discussion about the "Hindu Liberation Front" (actually for taking little old ladies out of the area) and the line "we revere cows; we don't take them on day trips to Margate", it was well worth the price of entry.
