  • Summary: After Kate moved out (back to the US? never really explained) Lee is faced with losing the flat and his rather inadequate cleaner Barbara. Lee rents the spare room to Tim's younger sister, Lucy.

    Of course this doesn't work out.

    Tim obviously becomes suspicious of Lee's influence on
    sister, in the same way as he as with Kate (his ex-girlfriend, in season 1.
    Series 2 sees Lee finds Lee in the art world, the underworld, and showing some tenacity in trying to obtain football tickets.

    Series 1 was very different.

    Things used to be great between Lee and Kate, two flatmates who counted Tim as thier best friend and boyfriend respectively. But ever since Tim and Kate broke up, things are more complicated. Tim can't get over the break-up, and how is he supposed to handle the deepening friendship between Lee and Kate?

    Initially axed by the BBC after Season Three Lee Mack's sit-com returned to the air in 2011 minus the now departed Miranda Hart. Since her character was never particularly funny anyway however it is no big loss.

    As one would expect Not Going Out continues to follow the same premise as its previous three series with realistic storylines being shelved in favour of making the viewer laugh. Despite the odd misstep along the way it is by and large successful at achieving this thanks to the superb comic timing of Lee Mack and Tim Vine in particular. In fact for me a number of the six episodes in this series are amongst the funniest yet despite, the unnecessary, addition of Tim’s girlfriend Daisy as a regular cast member and existing fans certainly won’t be disappointed.
