For the Goodman family, Friday Night Dinner is just like Sunday lunch: just take two days away, change the meal to dinner, and you’ve pretty much got it. Adam (Simon Bird) and his brother, Jonny (Tom Rosenthal), view Friday night dinner as a necessary annoyance - necessary because they get fed, and annoying because, well, they have to spend the evening with mum (Tamsin Greig) and dad (Paul Ritter).

Jacqueline "Jackie" Goodman is a grown-up lady with a teenage sense of humour, she's funny, fiery and occasionally a bit saucy. She's always the first to enthuse about something, and always the first to get annoyed.

Mum loves Masterchef, men with nice bums and having a natter with her best friend, Val (who has the same hair) - but most of all she loves her family.

Mum would love her eldest son, Adam, to hurry up and find a girlfriend, telling him: "Why don't you go on the internet and have a little look with Dad?". Mum adores her boys and fusses over them. In fact, she still cuts Jonny's toenails.
