This week on TV

2010-10-25 00:00

THE award-winning British comedy series My Family returns to SABC3 at 7.30 pm tonight for a seventh season.

In tonight’s episode, the Harpers re-encounter the Mortons, a couple they met on holiday, and go to dinner with them.

To Ben’s surprise — and a good massaging of his ego — the couple ask him to be a sperm donor so that they can try in vitro fertilisation. However, when his results come through, they prove that he has no reason to crow.

Meanwhile, Janey is annoyed to find that Mark, Kenzo’s long-absent father who has come back into the picture, has been married for two years without telling her and expects Kenzo to greet his “new mummy”. Other highlights this season include Abi and Roger deciding to marry and the family appearing on The Weakest Link.
