    10. Friday Night Dinner

    Welcome back to YOU HAVE BEEN WATCHING, a podcast about British sitcoms.

    Join your hosts Tony Black & Robert Turnbull as they discuss Robert Popper's celebrated Channel Four sitcom FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER, which ran for six series between 2011-2020.

    A cult show that grew into a favourite across several generations, what made the show such a success? Does it deserve to be heralded as the defining British family sitcom of the 2010s? We take a look and try to find out...
