Family Tree comedy series starts its BBC2 run

The new series of Family Tree started last night on BBC2 at 10pm, the comedy series that follows Tom, played by Chris O' Dowd, on the start of an ancestral journey. The first episode was a bit of a slow runner - one that can firmly be placed in the 'pilot episode' category, laboriously taking time to set up and introduce each of the main characters somewhat to the detriment of the story. But the potential for the series looks great, and hopefully things will step up a gear next week now that we know who everyone is!

To watch the first episode (if you live in the UK) on iPlayer, visit


My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My Scottish land and church records ebooks are available at, whilst my next Pharos Scottish course, Scottish Research Online, starts Sep 4th - see Time to smash a few brick walls...!
