MR SLOANE

BBC FIRST / 8.30PM

You can tell a lot about a man by the way in which he an­swers the phone im­me­di­ately af­ter a failed sui­cide at­tempt. It’s the ‘60s, and Jeremy Sloane (Nick Frost) is hav­ing a bad run, los­ing his job of 10 years and wife (Olivia Colman) on the same day. And af­ter a huge night at the pub (I’m pretty sure that Nick Frost has built into his con­tracts “will only play big beer drink­ing/curry eat­ing char­ac­ters with long scenes set in a bar”) his new temp job teach­ing kids starts out rather badly. First three eps (half-hour each) air tonight.
