The final episode (and sadly it probably is the final ever episode – see link) of Peter Kay’s Car Share was broadcast last night, though anyone in the know will have seen it weeks ago on iPlayer. Now it’s been broadcast to all and sundry, what do we think? [Spoilers ahead]
I have no hesitation in saying that this was the funniest and most moving television I have seen all year. The ‘Harry Potter’ episode was a bit of dip, though not without highlights, but overall this short series has been brilliant. I sometimes find Peter Kay hard to warm to, but his and Sian Gibson’s portrayals of John and Kayleigh were honest, hilarious and utterly believable. Anyone who didn’t find something in their eye when John watched Kayleigh walk out of his car and his life because he couldn’t confess his feelings for her, just as his dedication to her through the medium of his car radio is broadcast, must have a swinging brick in place of a heart.
