Wednesday, 9pm, Comedy ‘‘ Just because we live on an estate we’re not all single mums with drug problems, though obviously some of us are,’’ says central character Viva (Adelayo Adedayo, second from right) in this debut episode of Some Girls, a gritty new series about life on an English housing estate. Viva is pointing at her mate Mel, an alcoholic mum who drops ash on her baby. Though there are obvious dramatic elements, this is not Ken Loach. Some Girls is a comedy, a salty take on teenage angst, lust and desperation. In style it sits between The Inbetweeners and Shameless, but is funnier than either. Like Kath & Kim, Some Girls invites you to laugh at everyday idiocy but pokes you in the conscience as it does so. Viva is the moral centre of the show, surrounded by a phalanx of daffy characters at school and at home. Dolly Wells is a treat as sadistic Kiwi teacher Anna ‘‘ Bitchcock’’ Hitchcock.
