TV Breeze Block (BBC Choice 2002, Tim Healy, Su Elliott) Published 2 years ago on April 24, 2017 Not one to avoid negative stereotypes, Ian Pattison, award-winning writer of Rab C. Nesbitt, set his sights on Newcastle for the razor-sharp comedy drama Breeze Block. Tim Healy (Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) stars as downtrodden patriarch Ralph Breeze, an unemployed ex-factory worker who can barely face leaving the house and spends most of his days questioning his own sanity. His wife Iris (Su Elliott) would like a job in the local supermarket but can’t get the hang of the till. So it’s a good job their three kids are working – Carol (Alison Mac) at the local fishmongers; Eric (David Nellist) as a window cleaner and Billy (Craig Heaney) as a gigolo because it beats signing on. Other famous Geordie appearances come from Donna Air (Big Breakfast) and Ross Noble, as the Breeze’s nutty neighbours Kiki and Trevor, and Jayne Middlemiss. production details UK / BBC Choice / 6×30 minutes / Broadcast 4 March – 8 April 2002 Writer: Ian Pattison / Music: The Way Out / Executive Producers: Ian Pattison, Geoffrey Perkins / Producer: Stephen McCrum / Director: John Stroud cast Tim Healy as Ralph Breeze Su Elliott as Iris Breeze David Nellist as Eric Breeze Alison Mac as Carol Breeze Craig Heaney as Billy Breeze Berwick Kaler as Tommy Breeze Mark Benton as Mr Shields Jill Halfpenny as Gail Berwick KalerGeoffrey PerkinsIan PattisonJill HalfpennyJohn StroudSitcomsTim HealyTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Features1 day ago Classic Movie Characters: Arnold Schwarzenegger is The Terminator Before The Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger was viewed as little more than a B-list barbarian.
