Preview: High & Dry

New comedy series High & Dry begins Friday 4th May on Channel 4. Here are Sophie's thoughts on the opening episode...

Sophie Davies, The Velvet Onion, 4th May 2018

Even on an island paradise, hell is other people. Such is the neat premise of Marc Wootton's new comedy about castaways who survive a plane crash. There are some good one-liners but, in this opener at least, Wootton's garish sociopath, flight attendant Brett, rather overpowers the show.

Jonathan Wright, The Guardian, 4th May 2018

TV review: High & Dry, C4

Channel 4 is presumably pretty pleased with new sitcom High & Dry. It was originally due to air on E4 but has had an upgrade and now goes out on C4. Is their confidence justified? It is probably down to how much you can bear obnoxious characters.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 4th May 2018

High & Dry review

If you were to think of the worst person to be stuck on a desert island with, Marc Wootton's latest grotesque would be hart to beat.

Steve Bennett, Chortle, 4th May 2018

Marc Wootton's new sitcom boasts an intriguing premise: imagine if someone almost unbearably infuriating saved your life? And then you were stuck with them thereafter? Wootton is flight attendant, air-crash hero and monumental pain in the arse Brett. Among the survivors in his debt are Asim "Chabuddy G" Chaudhry.
