TV review: Cunk and Other Humans on 2019

I really hope this is a one off and next year Charlie Brooker pulls his finger out and returns to the Wipe format. Or does nothing at all, as that would be better than this gigantic mess.

Philomena Cunk on the Queen's Speech

The cultural commentator ponders this year's royal message, which she argues is 'like Gogglebox, but even posher than the bits with Stef and Dom in'.

Diane Morgan is back as the intrepid thinker and sarcastic interviewer Philomena Cunk in this end-of-year review, which is spread across the week in five-minute segments. With Brexit, the general election and Trump all on the agenda, it will be a squeeze to fit in all the year's chaos.

Review 2018: Top TV 2018

I don't know what it says about the times we are living in but comedy seems to have slipped into all sorts of programmes this year. I've kept my choices to more traditional comedies.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 24th December 2018

How much you enjoyed Philomena Cunk's history of Britain depends on how funny you find Diane Morgan's resting confused face. I find it hilarious. Her interviewees are kind of in on the joke but clearly briefed to take it as seriously as possible. They'll be mid-flow and she will cock her head and drain all the interest from her face. "What's the most political thing that's ever happened?" she asked Robert Peston, who did his best to answer with a straight face. Co-producer Charlie Brooker's fingerprints are everywhere in the way Morgan's vain, poorly informed, easily distracted Cunk operates within a ruthlessly satirical production, which sends up the tropes and clich├ęs of every dodgy documentary and history programme. She might not be the comic creation we need, but she is the one we deserve right now.
