Fags, Mags and Bags


Brilliant to hear the corner shop sitcom Fags, Mags and Bags back for a fourth series yesterday. The local priest is away in Bangladesh, but he’s keeping in touch with Dave and Ramesh by postcard. Father Henderson says he’s established an informal confessional booth under a tree, but his parishioners’ confessions aren’t much to write home about.

Dave: “Seemingly Arif Ali has been pilfering from his sister-in-law’s peg bag. Then he’s just written ‘boring’ with four Os.”

Ramesh: “Booooring!”

Dave: “Aye, and the rest of the card’s just exclamation marks.”

Episode 1 is on BBC iPlayer until midday, Monday 11 April 2011.
