Interview: Lucy Punch on dark comedy film Silent Night

Lucy Punch is one of the funniest actresses working today, and that was made clear by her performance in Silent Night. A movie about the impending doom of the world doesn't sound like a funny movie, and yet it is hilariously told through a group of friends trying to navigate their own fears, the fear of the children with them, and their own insecurities about the unknown.

Motherland's lazy cancer story betrays true struggles

As someone going through the hellish slog of a breast cancer diagnosis, I wish more care was given to Meg's storyline.

Motherland review

This show has become much more than a series of skits at the school gates. I hope it runs for years.

Motherland series three review

Sharon Horgan's angry baby is as biting as ever when skewering narcissistic middle-class mums. But it could make its white characters squirm a bit more.

Chitra Ramaswamy, The Guardian, 24th May 2021

Bloods (Sky One) pairs Famalam's Samson Kayo with, bizarrely, Jane Horrocks, as a mismatched pair of paramedics. The opener has each of them struggling towards any kind of cultural rapport - he big and angry and avowedly from the 'hood, she librarian-kind and mousy and determinedly from the suburbs of somewhere northern. It somehow works as comedy, if of the sweeter rather than distinctly darker kind. Hugely helped by the outlying cast, particularly Lucy Motherland Punch as the boss with an unrequited crush on sad widower Julian Barratt. Who would (quite inexplicably) rather cry into his pint than jump her bones.
