The Man in the White Suit, review

Stephen Mangan anchors this genial but muddled farce.

The Man in the White Suit review at Wyndham's Theatre

Sparky performances but laboured staging.

Review: The Man in the White Suit (Wyndham's Theatre)

There are a lot of good intentions powering Sean Foley's adaptation of the Ealing comedy classic The Man in the White Suit towards the stage. But rather like its hero Stanley's experiments to invent an indestructible fabric that never needs washing, it blows up in everyone's face, leaving a lot of fine actors, including its star Stephen Mangan, lying wounded in the process.

Sarah Compton, What's On Stage, 9th October 2019

Weirdy-beardy panel show regular Joe Wilkinson co-writes (with David Earl) and stars in this new three-part sitcom set on the Isle of Wight, a relatively untapped comedic setting. He plays Simon, nervously preparing to celebrate his 40th birthday by taking his girlfriend Donna (Diane Morgan) back to his childhood home to meet his daffy mum (Sue Johnston) and overbearing stepdad (Bobby Ball), unaware that his biological father (Nigel Havers) is also keen to elbow in on the fun.

Review: Death On The Tyne, Christmas Gold

It was pretty brave of Gold to schedule this one-off film on primetime on a Saturday night in the run-up to Christmas. But then the channel had reason to be ambitious. Their previous all-star Agatha Christie spoof starring Johnny Vegas and Sian Gibson, Murder on the Blackpool Express, was the highest-ever rating show on Gold. They will be hoping for the same here. And they might just get it.

Death on the Tyne, Gold, review

Another crude, silly and very funny outing.

Jeff Robson, i Newspaper, 15th December 2018

Death On The Tyne preview

Gold is primarily a reruns channel, so it's no surprise that its big commission is slightly old-fashioned in feel.
