Citizen Khan (Friday October 31, BBC One, 8.30pm)What’s It All About? Adil Ray writes and stars in this sitcom about British Pakistani Mr Khan’s often fraught life, and while many may be surprised to see it back for a new series – it hasn’t always had great reviews – it has grown an army of fans big enough to warrant a recommission.
The first episode sees the Khan family return from a trip to Pakistan with Mrs Khan’s mother in tow.
Mr Khan isn’t pleased about her presence, but cheers up when she announces her plan to move into a nursing home. However, when it becomes clear the old lady is loaded, he wonders if she might be better off staying with them after all.
Look Out For: A guest appearance by former Coronation Street stalwart and current Mount Pleasant cast member Sally Lindsay as a nursing home worker.
Ray says: “It’s testament to the whole team that we have got this far. I just can’t wait to get back in the studio with the entire Citizen Khan family.
“As the great British public get even more familiar with Mr Khan, it really excites me when I think about the places we can go. The Bahamas?”
