Loved this and all other series, although the earlier ones, I think were better. Occasionally the discussions between Brian and Simon are a little smutty which can take away rather than add to the comedy. However, overall my attention is held and I listen often.

Unpleasant Character

SPOILER ALERT (though i am trying to be vague)
I love this series, so very funny and very cleverly written. Tension between the titular character and her love intrest has been brewing since the start of the first series. This tension comes to a head in this series but in order to highlight the struggle Brian is facing, Clare becomes a thoroughly unpleasant character. Perhaps i have missunderstood her character up to this point but the way Clare is portrayed in this series makes it a difficult listen at certain points throughout. It cuts too hard into the comedy for me. I wouldnt mind having 1 or 2 episodes where the comedy is overshadowed by this in the series but it seemed every episode had this cloud over it.

Wonderfully entertaining

What is better than curling up after a hard day slaving away than with dedicated and politically-correct Clare? Even better is that this series is hilarious. No sooner have I finished one series then I am on to the next. What a find!
