There have been a few changes in Salford, as Ideal returns to BBC Three for a sixth series. After fleeing the UK in order to avoid a possible prison sentence, Moz and Jenny travelled to several different countries – although Jenny doesn’t seem to remember which ones. When they turn up on the doorstep, it isn’t quite the homecoming they’d hoped for.
For a start, PC, the police constable has taken up residence in Moz’s old flat, with his ex-girlfriend Nicki. Not only that, but with PC bringing home all the weed he’s confiscated, Nicki is now dealing to Moz’s original circle of clients and has seriously boosted profits. This series also welcomes a new tenant to the block. Tilly (Janeane Garofalo) is a beautiful, witty, artistic American girl, who runs her own small designer clothes shop: Trash Wednesday.
Starring Johnny Vegas as Moz, Ideal is as creative and uncompromising as ever, and like nothing else on TV.
