Sitcom Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps took us to Runcorn, a small town in the North of England, where five late teens/early twenty somethings are determined to enjoy their youth.
The main characters were Donna (Natalie Casey), Louise (Kathryn Drysdale), Jonny (Ralf Little), Gaz (Will Mellor) and Janet (Sheridan Smith).
