Critically these TV show to film adaptations never go well, some do majority don’t. Sadly the comedic shows seem to be the ones that falter. However for this one fans of Catherine Tate show you will probably be excited to see this one, rest of us we’ll stay away.

Militant vegan arsonists, raucous rugby teams, all night raves and crazed cops on motorbikes all make for a proper day out.
