Series hangs up on a double bill


Phone Shop

(Channel 4, 10.30pm)

Since October 2010, this sitcom about, you guessed it, a mobile phone shop, has been generating plenty of giggles with its cast of larger-than-life characters.

Now, season three comes to an end with a double bill.

In the opener, a personality greeter is added to the staff roster, a street saxophonist vies for Janine’s affections; Ashley (Andrew Brooke) realises a lifelong ambition, and Jerwayne (Javone Prince) discovers that race can be a barrier to love.

In the final episode, the crew seems set to split when Christopher (Tom Bennett) considers taking a new job, and Ashley and Jerwayne are drafted into Razz Prince’s sales team.

Look Out For: Martin Trenaman as shop manager Lance.

He’s one of the hardest working writers and actors in British comedy, and is perhaps best known for his work on The Inbetweeners.

And don’t miss Kayvan Novak as Razz. He may only appear in the odd episode, but he always raises the comedy level a few notches.

Kayvan says: “That was just playtime for me really. All credit to Phil Bowker who makes the series, and the boys that are there making it what it is every week”.
