Seven, Sun­day, 8.30pm ★★★ The ini­tial im­pres­sion is that Ricky Ger­vais’ send-up of crap British sit­coms, When The Whis­tle Blows, has sprung to life. Broad doesn’t be­gin to de­scribe the vein of hu­mour mined when two old ladies pre­tend to eat pet food to get their dog to eat. But grad­u­ally the on­slaught of gags, and the bawdy hu­mour, start to be­come fun­nier and fun­nier. Tonight Mrs Brown mis­hears a plan to put her dog in a home, and as­sumes her chil­dren mean to put her in a home. So­phis­ti­cated com­edy it is not — but it is cu­mu­la­tively very funny.
