Truth Seekers review

An affectionate British tribute to horror.

Louisa Mellor, Den Of Geek, 29th October 2020

Truth Seekers review

In spite of the horror-comedy's flaws, watching Frost and Pegg spar is always a joyous experience.

Ed Cumming, The Independent, 29th October 2020

Susan Wokoma interview

Following a string of strong roles on stage and TV, the actor now stars in Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's latest comedy. But, not so long ago, being on television hadn't even crossed her mind.

Hannah J Davies, The Guardian, 29th October 2020

Truth Seekers review

An underwhelming if warm eight-part series that posits the scariest theory of all: Frost and Pegg's powers are starting to wane.

Dan Seddon, NME, 29th October 2020

Truth Seekers review

Frost and Pegg reunite in a creepy new series about amateur paranormal investigators - but does it have the nimble wit of Shaun of the Dead?

Rebecca Nicholson, The Guardian, 30th October 2020

Truth Seekers, Amazon Prime, review

It may be that for hardcore Frost and Pegg fans, it proved thrilling enough to see them on screen together.
