While it appears from the first episode that much of the story will be centred around Kim's blossoming relationship with Nicky (a nicely funny Mawaan Rizwan), the heart of the series increasingly becomes the brilliantly twisted and violent mother/daughter relationship between Kim and Tina.Eamon Hennedy, The Digital Fix, 8th September 2020
As an edgy British comedy, Two Weeks To Live (Sky One, Wednesday) had no desire to cosy up to the viewer. Appearances were deceptive, however. Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) played Kim, a young woman brought up in the wilds of Scotland believing the end of the world was nigh. Trained to survive the apocalypse, Kim had a lot of skills but she had never been in a pub before, used money, walked in high heels, any of that. She was so unworldly, indeed, that she was fooled by two lads into thinking the end really was a fortnight away, and she had to crack on with job she came to do: find her father's killer and take revenge.
Williams had a nicely subtle comic touch, trying to come across as a bad ass only to poke herself in the eye with her sunglasses, and the first half hour episode rattled along. Physical comedy aside, it was light on gags though, which doesn't bode well, even for a dark comedy. Especially for a dark comedy.Alison Rowat, The Herald, 6th September 2020
Whether or not the series works as a whole is going to depend on how they manage the juggling act of keeping it feeling realistic despite clearly being a very unusual creation, but despite the odd flawed moment the majority of it is beguiling and amusing material, and I'm definitely intrigued as to how it will play out.Alex Finch, Comedy To Watch, 3rd September 2020
