Hullraisers review

Female-led Channel 4 comedy is irreverent, but flawed.

Flora Carr, Radio Times, 13th April 2022

Hullraisers is the celebration of Northern working class women we deserve

TV shows about the London middle classes are far more common and decidedly less harrowing, from Motherland to Catastrophe, Fleabag to This Way Up. When it comes to portrayals of northern working class women, we've been short-changed in terms of both quantity and authenticity - until now.

Hullraisers review

As one female-led comedy with a distinctive geographical flavour launches its final series, another starts its first. Airing straight after the season three premiere of Derry Girls, Hullraisers follows three working-class women at various stages of their adult journey.

Hullraisers can be the next Derry Girls

This show flies the Hull flag high. And that makes it more than worth its weight in chip spice.
