Season One Review.
3 June 2019 | by southdavidSee all my reviews

Peter (Toby Jones) is a downtrodden coach driver who's earning a living as a coach driver on the South Coast of England and supporting his daughter Kayla (Erin Kellyman) as she decides what to do with her life. His world opens up when he inadvertently transports Rita (Luwam Teklzgi) through the channel tunnel and then hides her from the people traffickers back in Bognor Regis.

I'm not sure how to feel about "Don't Forget the Driver". I think I appreciated it rather than enjoyed it. Despite the Sitcom trappings, it really isn't that funny, it's more like a quirky drama with a few points to make about 21st century Britain. Some of them are more subtle than others, Peter's twin brother Barry, for example, being against immigration despite having emigrated to Australia himself. Brexit isn't the only touching point for the series though, the death of small towns, particularly coastal communities is evident, as is elderly parents and the effects that mental and physical disabilities can have on their support network.

Though the cast are great and the points are important, and I believe in them, I can't help but wish that, like the similarly themed "The Dectectorists", the show managed to pack these in whilst making me laugh more often.
