Trivia

Filming on the second series of the sitcom was halted in November 2017 after star Ed Westwick was accused of sexual assault by three women in the United States. The actor strongly denied the accusations and in July 2018 the Los Angeles District Attorney announced that it would not pursue the cases due to insufficient evidence. Filming on series two resuming in November 2018 and the six-part series is expected to be ready to air on BBC Two in early 2019. See more »

Goofs

One episode in series 2 is set in Malta. The taxis used are left-hand drive vehicles, whereas in Malta they drive on the left, so the cars should have been right-hand drive. See more »

A good series, but as good as I would have hoped!
27 May 2017 | by blabbywhaleSee all my reviews

Overall, a very good series to watch on a rainy day but not one to stay up for!

If you're looking for something like "The Inbetweeners", this is probably NOT the series you would have hoped for. Though Joe Thomas and James Buckley's characters certainly have similar personas in this series, the whole show being dominated by Ed Westwick's imposing character means that the overall vibe is less childish and juvenile without turning dark.

A clever and comic plot, with hints of irony and at times bitter humour, whilst keeping some with some scenes being humorous in a rather vulgar way. The plot is quite memorable, and some scenes certainly have a deeper meaning to them; the final episode leaves one thinking about the ending for a some time afterwards. You certainly want to binge watch all the episodes at once, but perhaps not as much as "Cuckoo" or "Fresh Meat".

Despite this, I would not say it is as funny or accomplished as other British comedies with similar target audiences ("Cuckoo", for example is much funnier in my opinion). The main problem with this new show is that we hardly feel any empathy for characters, Ed Westwick's character is quite unlikable and the only character we really feel sorry for is Sam Swan (Lindsey Cocker). We understand that the others are quite irritating and annoying figures, but that's about it!

The other reason I find that this show is not as funny as it could be is because its seems a bit restrained in terms of use of language and insults. The show was shown at 10pm, and words such as "c**t" are used throughout the series. Vulgarities are then certainly present, yet it feels as though Joe Thomas and James Buckley's insults are quite restrained. And those two characters' vulgar and overly-offensive insults were some of the most hilarious parts of "The Inbetweeners".

"White Gold" is then certainly good, but did slightly disappoint after shows like "The Inbetweeners" where I felt that Thomas and Buckley were at their best.
