|| Set in the hamlet of St Gweep "Wild West" observes
the strange goings-on in the local cornish community. Shop owners
Mary Trewednack and her life-partner Angela, are the main focus
but there are many other strange characters in this sitcom.
||The first series of this sitcom was scheduled to appear on
prime-time BBC1; it didn't stand a chance. It collected a critical
mauling - whilst it wasn't a great show the reaction was probably
a little harsh. "Wild West" had some very black humour
and dark characters so was never meant to appeal to the masses
- it's definitely one of those you either love or hate. If you
take time to watch a few episodes from series 2 you might find
you actually start liking this sitcom and the characters within in (especially PC
Alan), we certainly did.
||The village of St Gweep is actually the real village of Portloe
in Cornwall where most of this sitcom was filmed.
