  • Just like it’s cousin, the British comedy series Outnumbered, What we Did on Our Holiday presents a dysfunctional family with hilarious, quirky kids, a strong British cast and plenty of comedy along the way. As the feature-length debut for directors Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, this is a strong start.

    Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike) McLeod are going through a rough period in their marriage, with a divorce likely immanent. To make things worse they have three difficult kids, the aspiring geologist – and five-year-old – Jess (Harriet Turnbull), the viking-obsessed Mickey (Bobby Smalldridge) and the honest Lottie (Emilia Jones), but they at least seem to understand the situation. However, when the family are to visit Doug’s father, Gordie (Billy Connolly) for his 75th birthday in the Scottish Highlands, Doug and Abi want to ensure that Gordie, who is dying of cancer, isn’t left to worry about their issues.
