Review of Pramface by Stuart Jeffries

.


In Pramface (BBC3) a potentially clunky premise – two teenagers’ drunken sex at a party leads to a pregnancy neither is ready for – is saved by cunning casting and a funny script. Sean Verey as 16-year-old father-to-be Jamie has scarcely lost his puppy fat, while as 18-year-old mother-to-be Laura, Scarlett Alice Johnson looks and plays like a young Harriet Walter – as hard as nails in dealing with her convincingly useless parents (Angus Deayton and Anna Chancellor), yet as brittle as pressed flowers with everyone else. I loved Jamie’s loser friend’s hopeless sex playlist – 50 Cent followed by the Top Gear theme tune. Although Chris Reddy’s plot is full of holes (would Laura, after discovering she’s pregnant, really make her first phone call to the shag buddy whose face she can’t recall?) there is enough in this too-much-too-young comedy’s opening episode to justify a second date.

  1. Hi there,
    This blog is hosted on wordpress.com. I have registered the yasminpaige.co.uk address and for a small
    fee you can link you registered address to the wordpress blog. My blog is accessable on yasminpaige.co.uk & yasminpaige.wordpress.com.
    The beauty of using wordpress is there isn’t any coding required at all.
    I did code my original site from the ground up and it WAS too much work.
    There is also loads of online help for wordpress which is a great help.

    You really just need to provide the content and after that select a theme for the look of the site
    from the many available (for free).

    Best bet is to set up a test site and have a play around.
    If you need any advice feel free to contact me on yasminpaigecouk@gmail.com

    Best of luck!
    Sean
