Her superb portrayal of Community Payback Supervisor, Diane Pemberley, was the comedy highlight of this series. Leaving aside creator and co-writer Stephen Merchant’s delightfully inept lawyer, Gregory Dillard, Gunning’s wannabe police officer put the comedy into this comedy drama.
Amy Hubbard and Amy Jackson along with their associates deserve great credit for putting together a stellar cast although, by all accounts, Merchant himself deserves the credit for Christopher Walkden’s participation.
The whole cast, including those not doing Community Payback, was superb, without exception.
More importantly if you haven’t yet seen the series you should do so. All six episodes are available on BBC iPlayer.
