I am afraid Benidorm is missing the Garvey's big time. Making Benidorm without them is like making Dads Arm with out Captain Mainwaring

Way past its best.....
I used to love this series, but the last series was so bad and unfunny I only watched the first episode. Poor writing is to blame in my opinion & poor casting decisions. Lots of characters coming back when they aren't funny any more - needs put to bed now.

Bad since 6th series
Brilliant series 1 - 4, 5 started the rot with poor casting. Very sad.

Put it out of its misery
Worst series yet unfortunately, the best characters have long gone. Won't bother watching the next series, especially if Joey is back in it - the most irritating character ever.

Brilliant!
Clever, fun and well written. Benidorm gets better as it progresses - no wonder it keeps winning awards!

Very Disappointed
As an avid fan of all the previous series' I was expecting great things of the latest. The writer must have had the pick of hundreds of actors wanting to join the show. How he ended up with these new characters is totally beyond me. They don't interact, their dialogue is not funny, they are not funny in themselves. The new ones should have been able to banter similar to the Garveys. What an utter disappointment!

Drivel
As a great fan of Benidorm I found the last series total drivel except for the last episode can't believe its the same writer.

Another Series
The writers obviously don't read this columns, because the voice-over at the end of Monday's episode, said there will be a new Series early next year. Sadly I did not recognise Shane Ritchie until the cast appeared at the end.

Yawn inducing
Loved Benidorm but suffered through latest series. Flashes of humour from old cast members but wooden and uninspiring new characters. Such a shame for the stalwarts to be on the edges of such drivel.

Dear oh dear
This programme was always a little cheesy but harmless innocent fun to watch and I enjoyed it.....22nd Feb hit a new low...even my 10 year old thought it was silly. Time for the scriptwriter to retire or re-schedule for children's tv

Dreadfull
I started watching Benidorm about two years ago and it was great this series is really poor either change the cast or change the writers .A real shame.

Immature,humourless,
Long time fan have all the previous box sets. This series was so badly written I thought that it had been written by a different person but apparently not so. The new family was absolutely boring, a hen pecked husband, a wife completely up herself, a spoiled brat of a daughter and a moaning groaning old codger of a grandfather. There was no amusing interaction at all. The only characters worse than them were Tiger and his stupid friend both of them thick as two short planks and not at all funny, and Shane Ritchie who could not have been more irritating if he had tried. We did not even have a nice singer, singing a popular song, as we did in most episodes of previous series . Karaoke performances were dire, consisting of a screeching child, a screeching adult, and two tuneless old codgers. There was no humour at all. Exactly like watching paint dry. It seemed to have been written by a teenager for adolescents. Needless to say I will not be purchasing the box set for this series. If you cannot do better than this do not bother to make another series.

So So Bad
There is no way I will be watching this ever again. It use to be my favourite programme. The new family, Joey and Tiger and now Shane Ritchie please plese go away. Who ever has written this series has a very strange sense of humour
kitty kat 7:04pm Tue 23 Feb

latast Benidorm series
I enjoyed previous Benidorm series so much, but the latest series is painfully disappointing. It is as if the script writers have been changed or they are script writing to order which is stifling their former humor.

Learn from Fawlty Towers?...
...and quit while you are ahead! - this show should have been buried when it was at it's peak (around Series 3?) - I've stuck with it out of loyalty but the latest series is diabolically UNFUNNY with tedious, childish, and unrealistic characters and storylines, dreadful ham-acting, and possibly three of THE most annoying characters I've ever seen on TV - Joey, Tiger, and the daughter of the new family... Money for old rope. No More!!!

Worst series yet
Watched all the previous series and enjoyed them. This series is really poor i keep watching it thinking it must get better but it actually gets worse! Bring the Garveys back they made it!
Col 9:30pm Mon 22 Feb
 
     
What has happened! This series is unbelievably poor!
It's such a shame this series is so badly written and I don't know if it's down to the poor writing but not a single members of the new cast can act! Still love the old cast but the writing in this series is such a let down, leaving it laking the quirkiness and substance it had in previous series. Was a huge fan before but don't think I will be watching any more episodes.

Terrible
I have watched and enjoyed every other series, I also purchased the full DVD's of every previous series. This one is terrible. The advertisers supporting the programme she have their investments returned. The young man with the frizzy hair will probably never work again, his jokes are unbelievably poor. Surely the writers and producers can see this. Rating Zero.

so disappointed
Was looking forward to the latest episodes of Benidorm. However, they have been extremely diluted into very poor watching. Please get rid of most of the new cast, who have had a seriously negative effect on what was a brilliantly funny programme.
DC 7:21pm Sun 21 Feb

Should be the last series
Time to pull the plug - the endings are nearly always the same boring karaoke nights, also missing the Garveys!

Poorest show on tv
Been to Benidorm because we loved the show so much. This series is full of over-acting, rediculous plots and the worst one-liners ever. No more please!!

Disappointed
Really sad, I so looked forward to the return of Benidorm but this 2016 series is diabolical. I have tried to stay with it but every episode is equally lacking. Such a shame :(

Awful
What was writer Derren Litten thinking? Awful script, the characters don't work. Litten is resting on his laurels. Need new writers, this show could be excellent again.
Kit 8:43pm Tue 16 Feb

Too awful to watch.
We got into Benidorm quite late but have watched all the past series and thought it was hilarious. However, this is really the worst thing I have ever seen. The script is awful, not a funny line at all, and the casting is terrible. I can bear to watch it.
Indie 7:51pm Tue 16 Feb
 
     
So sad
Me and the whole family were total fans and never missed an episode, have all the DVDs and even holidayed in Benidorm for the laugh. This latest series is the end of that love affair. Unbearable & unwatchable.
