Benidorm's last ever episode review

An abrupt end for this old-fashioned comedy.

Ed Power, The Telegraph, 2nd May 2018

The ITV institution is celebrating its 10th series in true Costa Del Sun style: that means sunburned bum cracks by the Hotel Solano pool, all-inclusive innuendo and (later in the series) evening entertainment provided by the Chuckle Brothers. In this episode, the big day arrives for hotel manager Joyce (Corrie veteran Sherrie Hewson) and Monty (John Challis from Only Fools and Horses), but will they make it to "I do"? Less a TV show, more a sunny retirement community for the light-entertainment stars of yesteryear.

In praise of Benidorm, the UK's most under-rated sitcom

It's a funny old game, comedy. Steve Pemberton's critical accolades for The League of Gentleman, and BBC2's late night cult hit, Inside No 9, are legion. But you'll be hard pressed to read glowing reviews of his eight years starring in the ITV comedy Benidorm. In fact you'll be hard pressed to read anything glowing from sniffy critics about the hit sitcom, despite its millions of viewers, longevity and viewer-voted National Television Awards. In fact, one critic went so far as to describe the viewing public a "disgrace" for voting for it.
