Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

There’s some­thing in­her­ently funny about camp­sites, as the Carry On crew proved in the late 1960s. In 2016, it seems there’s lit­tle dan­ger of the genre be­ing for­got­ten ei­ther, thanks to the first episode of this re­turn­ing se­ries. Philip Jack­son (so good in Caitlin Mo­ran sit­com Raised in Wolves), Ali­son Stead­man, Russ Ab­bot, Stephanie Beacham, Paula Wil­cox and James Smith make up the trio of newly re­tired cou­ples who take a break from the Nor­folk re­sort of Thurnemouth and go camp­ing. Thanks to Alan, the men hit a few prob­lems on a char­ity bike ride.
