Did You Know?


Gavin and Stacey's surnames (Shipman and West) are named after the famous British serial killers Dr. Harold Shipman (one of the most prolific serial killers ever, believed to have had least 200 victims) and Fred West. Also Pete Sutcliffe (Adrian Scarborough), has the same first and last name as the man known as "The Yorkshire Ripper". See more »


In series 3, both Bryn and Gavin's cars have completely different registration numbers from the previous series. Gavin's blue Saxo has changed from a T-reg (MY 1999) to an X-reg (MY 2000). Bryn's green Picasso has changed from CV02 (MY 2002, registered in Cardiff) to HV54 (MY 2004, registered in Portsmouth). They are obviously different cars. See more »

Hugely refreshing
30 April 2011 | by daftpunkparisSee all my reviews

I bought the complete series of Gavin & Stacey in a box-set and could not stop watching it even though I wanted to delay watching the third and final season as it would mean that my viewing pleasure would be shortened.

Gavin & Stacey is a story centred on 2 individuals, their family and friends. It has a very simple storyline showing how the characters relate to one another in their ordinary day to day lives.

The romance between Gavin & Stacey aside, what I loved about the series is the friendship between Gavin & Smithy and Stacey and Vanessa. It is easy to identify with how the separate pairs of besties relate to each other and remain besties throughout the series despite their changing circumstances, like Gavin & Stacey getting married and each having to leave their hometowns and their besties at different points in the series.

I particularly liked how Vanesssa (played by Ruth Jones) is so tough and yet vulnerable. Vanessa also makes makes some very terse remarks in her Welsh tongue which cracked me up. I love the soundtrack, and how the characters relate through music (music by New Order, for one).

All the actors hold their own and both scriptwriters Ruth Jones and James Corden deserve the all accolades they have received for this series.
