Loaded: Watto’s Mum (Channel 4, 29 May 2017, with Michael Brandon)

Published

on

The comedy drama about friendship, ambition and gluttony… and the peculiar British distaste for other people’s success and how money can put even life-long friendships to the test, continues.

In Watto’s Mum, Watto (Nick Helm) is ecstatic when his errant mum Pauline (Julia Deakin) arrives back on the scene, seemingly oblivious to her son’s multimillion pound fortune and claiming to have made one all of her own.

The Gang are initially impressed. But Ewan’s (Jonny Sweet) growing suspicions lead him to stage an intervention that goes horribly awry. Casey (Mary McCormack) announces that her boss ‘the Emperor’ (Michael Brandon) is flying to London specifically to hear Josh (Jim Howick) and Leon’s (Samuel Anderson) pitch for the new game. Casey’s rattled when she learns that they have nothing to pitch, but Abi (Aimée-Ffion Edwards) surprisingly saves the day.

Watto, desperate to keep his mum at close quarters, does everything he can think of to make her stay.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
