RE: If you enjoyed Educating Rita and Shirley Valentine you'll recognise Mavis Turner

But Can You Drink the Water? (droll, witty and utterly British)

Follow the hilarious lives of the naïve Turner family as they emigrate from Liverpool to sunny South Africa. Laugh out loud as they encounter 'crocodiles' on the wall, strange African customs and unintelligible Afrikaans accents. Cringe with them as their visiting in-laws embarrass them in front of their new SA friends.
(Some of the events are loosely based on actual experiences of expats Rolleyes Wink
