I TALK Benidorm (Series 5)

If you're a regular reader of my blog then you would have realised that whilst I talk often about comedy on BBC, Channel 4 and Sky, I haven't ever mentioned ITV. And there's a good reason for that.

Unlike the golden age of the 70s (Bless This House, Robin's Nest, Man About The House, George & Mildred, On The Buses) where ITV made some great comedy, ITV no longer make decent or consistant comedy sitcoms.


However this all changed in February 2007 when Derren Litten (The Catherine Tate Show) introduced us to Benidorm, a sitcom set in the Spanish coastal town of Benidorm, and centred around the all-inclusive Solana Resort Hotel (a real hotel which is often visited by tourists - of a different type - as a result of the show).
