Breeders review

I'll miss its cynicism-fuelled sparkle.

Barbara Ellen, The Observer, 22nd October 2023

Breeders review

I gave up on Breeders a while back. Paul (Martin Freeman) and Ally (Daisy Haggard) were just too angry. But at the start of the final season they're getting on a whole lot better, having decided to divorce, not least at the back of the church while sending up friends renewing their vows.

Breeders was back and in top form.

Alison Rowet, The Herald, 21st October 2023

Breeders review

This joyous parenting comedy flies the nest.

Ben Dowell, The Times, 20th October 2023

Breeders review

Admirably frank, but this parenting comedy has lost its sense of humour.

Benji Wilson, The Telegraph, 20th October 2023
