This week we review - The Break (Series 3 Episodes 1)
The Break is set in the fictional Yorkshire coastal town of Flamford - the seaside town sanity forgot - and features retired resident, Jeff Whittaker and his estranged London-bred financial whizz-kid nephew, Andy Chambers, who has arrived unannounced and stressed-out in desperate need of peace and quiet.
Andy gets neither of these as Jeff takes it upon himself to cure all of Andy's ills in a series of comic and poignant adventures around the town. Each week they meet Jeff's regular friends, Fish Shop Frank, Pest Control Supervisor, Corinne who has an 'arrangement' with Jeff every second Thursday, and Joyce Rickles from The Copper Kettle Café, who is constantly startled by everything, most of all her flamethrower toaster.
Written by Ian Brown and James Hendrie
Produced by Gordon Kennedy.
Directed by Gordon Kennedy.
