BUCKET

THE TELEGRAPH

Bucket: tenderness, fury, and lashings of gynaecology - review ****

THE DAILY MAIL

Forget Peter Kay. It's more fun to car share with Miriam Margolyes ****

BEYOND THE JOKE 

Was worried this was going to be soppy, sentimental and full of growing old disgracefully cliches. And while there is certainly plenty of that, there is much more edge and depth to it than expected. Never mind seizing the day, just seize the TV remote and tune in on Thursdays at 10pm.

GAP YEAR

THE GUARDIAN

Gap Year is very silly and very puerile, and I mean both in a good way. A Plebs way.

RADIO TIMES

Angst, laughs and fun in the sun with E4's Gap Year

SUNNY D

THE GUARDIAN

Sunny D – Dane Baptiste's sitcom is dizzyingly hilarious

BEYOND THE JOKE

What is important is that there are laughs, which there are. Hopefully the BBC will make more.

SO AWKWARD

BROADCAST AWARD WINNER 2016

This was delivered with a lightness of touch and a slick filming style, including some imaginative and heightened pre-title sequences that impressed the judges. “It’s really funny, smart and witty, with a real spark to it,”

JAMILLAH & ALADDIN

THE INDEPENDENT

Of course, it’s just a TV programme and we shouldn’t over-blow its importance,

But, if we continue with positive, diverse programming, then it can play a role in shaping the next generation’s belief systems, values and morals.

HANK ZIPZER - THE WORLD'S GREATEST UNDERACHIEVER

Here are some great reviews for the first series. It originally aired Jan 2014, and has since gone on to create three further acclaimed series, and a final Christmas Special for CBBC.

 

As mentioned previously the final episode directed by Bex, 'First Date Dilemma' written by Joe Williams was nominated for Best Fiction at the Royal Television Society Awards, 2015.
