Previously a documentary project, this story of allotment strife has race issues, the threat of a mobile phone mast and a none too subtle metaphor for contemporary British society in place. Simplistic characterisation, predictable plotting and a prosaic televisual style have resulted in a mediocre, triumph-against-the-odds British comedy.
