Publisher's Summary

Series 2 of the BBC Radio 4 sitcom written by and starring Sanjeev Kohli and Donald McLeary, set in a Glasgow corner shop.

More shop-based shenanigans and over-the-counter philosophy, courtesy of Ramesh Mahju and his trusty sidekick Dave. This second series sees guest appearances from Nina Wadia and Hardeep Singh Kohli. Gerard Kelly also reprises his role as Father Henderson. Ramesh Mahju has built his shop up over the course of 30 years, and it is a firmly entrenched feature of the local area. He is ably assisted by his sidekick Dave, a forty-something underachiever who shares Ramesh's love of the art of shopkeeping, even if he is treated like a slave.

Then of course there are Ramesh's sons Sanjay and Alok, both surly and not particularly keen on the old-school approach to shopkeeping. However, they are the natural successors to the business, and Ramesh is keen to pass all his worldly wisdom on to them - whether they like it or not...

Sheer Shop Brilliance

First heard this on Radio 4, instantly loved Ramesh, Dave and the boys. Brilliantly observed comedy in a low-return retail concern. It is both amazing and great!

Heaven

Buy it, and see your outlook improve. Idealogical wisdom at its best. Utterly hilarious and so much more. Better than a health farm. Not good on a plane though. I had one of those fits, where you're trying to stop snorting. 'The brown Spielberg' did it. I don't exaggerate when I say it's changed my life and vaguely restored my faith in the B.B.C. Truly great. Ax
