Top cast lined-up for Stephen Fry film The Liar

David Walliams, Charles Dance, Hugh Bonneville, Rupert Everett, Warwick Davis and Sally Phillips are amongst the cast lined-up for The Liar, a film based on Stephen Fry's book.

British Comedy Guide, 18th March 2020

I wanted to love Quacks, Rory Kinnear and Rupert Everett hamming it up with much snot, grist and ether, prat-slipping all over the ichor-soaked boards of Victorian London. But, if I didn't actually laugh once, does it deserve to be billed as a comedy? Still. It's written by James "Rev" Wood, has a winningly short title, and even Blackadder started pretty poorly.

From the creator of Rev. comes a new sitcom exploring the world of Victorian medicine.

This rollicking medical farce set in a convincingly pungent Victorian London comes courtesy of James Wood, co-creator of Rev. A talented cast - including Rory Kinnear as a fame-hungry sawbones, Tom Basden as a cocaine-fuelled dentist and Mathew Baynton as a wide-eyed alienist - amp up their performances to match the fevered plotting, while hawkish Rupert Everett swoops in to steal scenes as mercurial royal physician Dr Hendrick.

Quacks: a medical comedy that will have you in stitches

Rory Kinnear's leonine sawbone leads the cast in a gloriously grim and hilarious trip into the rock'n'roll world of Victorian medicine.
