We binge watched the whole series over a couple of days. As entertainment it was just brilliant and for me the scene with Gerald the combine driver issuing instructions was right up there with Fawlty Towers! Couldn’t stop laughing.
We have a long lonning to farm 2 which has a caravan site. In a review someone had a moan there were some deep potholes.
