Meet the Ad(d)ams family
BBC Scotland's soap River City finally got to make use of a pun that's been lying in wait for years. Among the cast is a clan of loveable rogues called Adams, the sort of characters that cause comedy and tragedy in equal measure. This week was Halloween, so the show got to embrace the obvious pun and have the characters dress up as the Addams Family, a ghoulish gang seen in films, a 1960s TV sitcom and a cartoon series in The New Yorker. It was an instant classic River City moment. There's an omnibus of River City on BBC One from 1.05pm on Sunday if you live in Scotland. If you've got digital or Freeview, you may well be able to access the BBC Scotland feed and see the show south of the border.
