That Peter Kay Thing

Show Summary

Like Kay's The Services before it, the show proceeds as a spoof documentary and captures six different yet similar slices of life in Bolton, with the now-familiar cast of Phoenix Nights playing multiple roles. Each episodes focuses on a different set of hilarious characters, including Brian Potter and the staff of the ill-fated Neptune club. The back story of Potter and the others is told here for the first time. If more restricted than Phoenix Nights, That Peter Kay Thing is still winningly hilarious and, unlike other BBC comedies which have since copied its format, extends a deep generosity to the people it lays bare on the screen.
