If I need to brighten up my window decor I would probably rely on roses and never let in those slimy, sleek, slinky sales team from the double-glazing showroom in Essex! They are inhabiting the delicious comedy White Gold in Netflix now. But if I am bored to death, on a dull day, or am getting tired of my neighbour’s endless gossiping, I will let myself be rescued by Vincent Swan, a dreadfully dubious, irksomely charming totally unreliable sales person who will come to sell you expensive double-glazing windows.
He and his awful sales team from Essex will rip you off recklessly and rudely, if you are dumb enough to buy their product. But if you only use them to turn a dull day into delirious delight, and also to be cured of a painful neighbour, you have got yourself a huge bowl of chocolate ice cream!
Ed Westwick who plays the unbelievably rotten Vincent Swan with magical, gruesome grease, is a huge treat. So is every other unsavoury, unreliable, odious and dreadful character in this very naughty comedy from BBC! If wicked comedy cheers you up, don’t miss this one. Only don’t go for double-glaze windows! Stick to good old reliable roses!
