David Jason starred in the BBC’s new comedy drama about a bungling security guard assigned to protect HRH the Queen, Ashley had a butchers and this is his take on it.
Brilliant slapstick! Could've been terrible – Well done Frost!
Well Ashley liked it but I didn’t, I thought it was flawed in almost every department. It was poorly scripted, had a completely illogical plot and the inevitable adventure was unbelievable, stupid and dim-witted. The acting was more so far past ham that it might have been spam and it wasn’t in the least bit funny, but there you go.
It aired over Christmas and has been repeated since, if you’ve seen it I can only apologise for not getting this review up sooner so you didn’t have to. If you haven’t seen it yet then think yourself very lucky that Ashley and I did it for you so that you never have to sit through such an embarrassing and turd riddled spectacle. If it comes around again whatever else you do, DO NOT watch it, it’s a flaming crock of shit. It’s set for a November DVD release which implies that there’ll be a second series, which is staggering as the viewing figures for it were deservedly dire.
