A sitcom in which homeless man Sheldon and wheelchair-user Paul strike up an unlikely friendship after a chance meeting. The comedy follows the daily goings on in Bramble Lodge, the sheltered accomodation where they live.

BCG Review:

The first series was greeted favourably... there was some sharp one-liners, funny situations and the characters were nicely rounded. Having said that we found the character of Paul a bit annoying at times.

It's nice to see a comedy based around disabilities which doesn't patronise or make too big a deal about the fact the cast are disabled but at the same time manages to get across the point that those with disabilities can lead fairly normal lives and be just as scheming, funny etc as everyone else.

Let's hope a second season is commissioned by BBC3. We imagine they will get the greenlight as the ratings were good.
