Man Down review

The end of the fourth series of Man Down had plenty to get your teeth into, with chaos, comedy and pathos all thrown in.

TV Review: Motherland and Man Down

This fourth series of Man Down seems to be operating on a system whereby one week is excellent and the next is merely very good. I've told you before how much I love the anarchic, weird Man Down, so let's look at Motherland.

Greg Davies interview

Greg Davies on why he's piling on the pressure in Man Down -- and why he's still in touch with Taylor Lautner.

Andrew Williams, Metro, 6th November 2017

Man Down, the Greg Davies vehicle, is ultimately funnier, more surreal, more grown-up that Bounty Hunters. It's suddenly struck me that the title (and the titles, which feature Davies as a puppet, having his strings suddenly cut) is double-edged: it's a rejoinder to being told to "man up". Scatological, and scattergun in parts, he's aided by a tremendous cast: filthy, but often filthily funny.

Preview - Man Down

Sacked from his latest job, living in an old people's home, humiliating himself in front of his girlfriend's father - things didn't go well for Dan last week.
