Storyline

Set on a fictional Spanish island, Woody follows the fortunes of one of the UK's best undercover reporters. Woody (Novak) is forced to go on the run from the British authorities after being set up by his corrupt newspaper editor. Woody escapes to find the one man he can trust, his former mentor at the newspaper, Brutus (Walsh). Now an expatriate living a quiet life running a bar on a Spanish island, Brutus is initially less than thrilled to see Woody. However, he soon realises that he can profit by putting his trouble-making protege to work. Woody takes on a series of investigations on the island, running rings around the locals by using his astonishing ability to adopt a variety of guises at a moment's notice.

A failed attempt if ever there was one
14 April 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

Bradley Walsh is a funny guy. As is Kayan Novak. Put them in this BBC sitcom that's trying to be somewhere between 'The Pink Panther' and 'Minder' however and they both come out of it looking like the most unfunny men on the planet.

The farcical elements are all well and good, we know that Novak is a man of a million voices, but some of the jokes are so cringe worthy that you wince rather than laugh.

The always lovely Emma Pierson is a welcome addition, but there's a good reason this show didn't make it to series 2 and that's that it was so cartoonish that people couldn't get on with it.

Comedy is a hard nut to crack. Just ask the writers of this show.
