Mortgage
6 November 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The second series of Not Going Out and it feels like a completely different show. I was surprised that it had four credited writers including Peter Tilbury, the creator of Shelley.

Megan Dodd did not return as Kate. She has been replaced by Sally Bretton as Lucy.

Tim is selling the flat that Lee and Kate stayed in. Lee is interested in buying it but he needs to get a mortgage. As an ice cream seller, he needs to sells hundreds and thousands to show he has the necessary income.

Meanwhile, Tim persuades his sister Lucy who has been staying with him since she returned from her executive job abroad to go and flat share with Lee.

By making Lucy the sister of Tim. The show managed to get rid of the eternal triangle of the first series. Lee has fallen for Kate but he knows this will upset his best friend Tim who is Kate's ex boyfriend.

The other significant cast addition was Miranda Hart joining as house cleaner Barbara who keeps breaking things. Hart had played a small role in the first series as a different character and Lee Mack must have been impressed enough to add her to the cast.

So a rebooted show with different dynamics. Given that Not Going Out is still running in 2019, it was a rather successful reworking.
