About this show

Moz has been dealing drugs for over twenty years from his small bedsit in Manchester which he shares with his girlfriend, Nicki. But despite his chosen profession Moz is a man of principles who believes he is providing a crucial service to the local community, which pretty much extends as far as his closest friends: Kuldip, an Asian DJ and police constable who is also Moz's chief cannabis supplier; Jane, the childminder from hell; Brian, a camp scally who seems to have a new boyfriend every week and a man who always wears a cartoon mask, simply known as 'Cartoon Head'.

Brilliant series. Ideal is an easy going light comedy that's perfect for anyone with a sense of humour and not offended by drug references.
