Sharon and Rob decide to get on a fitness drive. When Sharon visits her less than sympathetic local GP it dawns on her she's not in the peak condition she imagined, but Fran has a helpful suggestion to get her on the right track. Meanwhile Rob endures a fruit-based confrontation at a local park and Dave shows how much he's embracing fatherhood.

Catastrophe, episode 3, review

Nobody could call this sitcom predictable. This often-shocking sitcom has a modish wisdom that speaks to the nation's thirty-somethings.

Sean O'Grady, The Independent, 23rd January 2019

Sharon and Rob are on a health kick, one that puts her on a collision course with her GP. It may be that she's not as physically fit as she thought? Plus, there is another bravura turn from Daniel Lapaine as Rob's friend Dave. It is as painfully relatable as ever, yet still, somehow, a pleasure.

Ellen E. Jones, The Guardian, 22nd January 2019
