★★★★★ – The Guardian

★★★★★ – The Times

A celebration of the unique life and talent of Caroline Aherne, featuring unseen photographs and contributions from a cast of her lifelong friends, including Steve Coogan, John Thompson, Craig Cash and producer Andy Harries.

Aherne’s pioneering representation of working class and family life in The Royle Family won her two Baftas and changed comedy writing forever, while her alter ego Mrs Merton’s question to stage performer Debbie McGee – ‘So what first attracted you to the millionaire Paul Daniels?’ – has been voted the greatest comedy put-down in British TV history.
