‘Gentle daytime drama’
TV favourite Larry Lamb (Eastenders, Gavin and Stacey) returns to our screens as Frank Hardcastle, a recently widowed Londoner getting to grips with big changes in his life, in the Welsh-set comedy drama Pitching In currently airing on BBC One and coming to DVD and digital courtesy of Acorn Media International on 8 April 2019.
Welcome to Daffodil Dunes Holiday Park in the picturesque village of Glan Mor on the north Wales coast: the heartbeat of this close-knit community, run by salt-of-the-earth cockney Frank for 50 years. When his flighty daughter Carys (Caroline Sheen – Les Miserables) and grandson Dylan (William Romain – Creeped Out) show up at his 71st birthday party and announce they are staying for good, Frank considers whether it might be a good time to sell up and start again. Especially as local estate agent, Iona Driscoll (Hayley Mills – Wild at Heart) has a very tempting offer for him to consider…in more ways than one.
But Carys convinces her dad to let her become the park’s new manager, prompting a flurry of hare-brained schemes as she attempts to attract new customers and appease the long-term residents. Carys must also deal with her feelings for ex-fiancé Danny (Craig Russel – Hollyoaks) who runs the local pub with his new partner. Can she stay away from the man she jilted at the altar?
Telling the story of three generations of the same family, all struggling to make the best of a very unusual set up on the edge of the Irish sea, Pitching In also features Gavin and Stacey co-star Melanie Walters and Taj Atwal (Line of Duty, Stella). This community-spirited drama is touching, funny, and romantic.
Home really is what you make it, so settle in for this cracking coastal comedy.
