There’s excitement chez Goodman as a surprise party has been organised for Mum’s birthday in Friday Night Dinner.

Though, as sons Adam and Jonny (Simon Bird and Tom Rosenthal) point out, it won’t be much of a surprise to Mum (Tamsin Greig) as she’s forced Dad (Paul Ritter) to organise it! What could possibly go wrong?

Well, inviting people on the wrong date for starters…

David is the What To Watch Editor and has over 20 years of experience in television journalism. He is currently writing about the latest television and film news for What To Watch.


Before working for What To Watch, David spent many years on TV Times magazine, interviewing some of television's most famous stars including Hollywood actor Kiefer Sutherland, singer Lionel Richie and wildlife legend Sir David Attenborough. 


David started out as a writer on TV Times before becoming the title's deputy features editor and then features editor. During his time on TV Times, David also helped run the annual TV Times Awards. David is a huge Death in Paradise fan, although he's still failed to solve a case before the show's detective! He also loves James Bond and controversially thinks that Timothy Dalton was an excellent 007.


Other than watching and writing about telly, David loves playing cricket, going to the cinema, trying to improve his tennis and chasing about after his kids!
