Here’s a quick caricature of none other than Gavin and Smithy. The two Essex’s boys from the much loved sitcom series Gavin and Stacy. A quick overlook at the plot. It first follows the long distance relationship between Gavin Shipman played by Matthew Horne from Billericay in Essex and Stacy West from Barry Island, and the friends and families of the characters. The writing and story lines are British comedy at its best.


Co writer James Corden plays Smithy who is best friends with Gavin since school. Smithy loves Gavin’s family over his own family and spends all his time there. We never get to see Smithy’s girlfriend throughout the show as she’s always busy with her activities. Another main characters is Nessa. Nessa and Smithy always have this intriguing sexual tension between them which results in several one night stands between them. Smithy’s feelings for Nessa are shown in different ways, for example by the way he objects to Dave and Nessa getting married. By announcing his feelings in the church and halting the wedding of Dave and Nessa all together.


Nessa Jenkins is played Ruth Jones who is the other co-writer. Although Nessa works in the arcade at Barry Island we are constantly learning what a full life she lived. As a lover with John Prescott and Dodi Al-Fayed. Also a nanny for Richard and Judy and a trucker for Eddie Stobart to name a few. Along with Nessa’s no-nonsense and care-free character, we know Nessa enjoys a bit of BDSM. Amusing with what takes places on the first Episode with her and Smithy and a toilet brush, and then later series Nessa buys a Dominatrix outfit at a wedding fayre. She then says to Stacy “I like it, but I don’t need another whip!” Hah – in fact some of her one lines will be long remembered. Here is a few. “I won’t lie to you” – “what’s occurring” – “tidy” and another one I’ve started using is – “Truth be Told”. It’s a fabulous sitcom I hope they do another series one day.
