Television What’s On

The heavy use of flashback can drag a drama down, but this week the western spin-off does at least dig to the core of Sarah (Lisa Vicari) and her brutal past. Django (Matthias Schoenaerts), meanwhile, is entangling himself with racist mercenaries who will, in the drama’s present day, come back to haunt him. Originally aired on Gold, this gently whimsical sitcom from 2019 stars Joe Wilkinson as Simon, a 40-yearold bringing his girlfriend (Diane Morgan) home to meet the family. Mum (Sue Johnston) and stepdad (Bobby Ball) are embarrassing, but it’s nothing that can’t be resolved by a few fart gags.
