The Royle Family
Available on NOW, BBC iPlayer, ITVX
`The Royle Family' follows the everyday life of the average working-class Royles in Manchester. Jim is the patriarch, a rather lofty title for someone who watches a lot of television, and does as little else as he can. That makes his hard-working wife, Barbara, the main breadwinner, and the only one who seemingly sticks up for their picked-upon youngest son Antony. Often seen relaxing with Jim on the family sofa is daughter Denise and her husband, David, as is Barbara's morbid, storytelling mother Norma (known as Nana).
