Cast & crew
Curb your cynicism, it's the festive season.
Carol Midgley, The Times, 10th December 2020
Jon Richardson seems to treat this as a time for re-gifting, or recycling, his old jokes. One about a 'sad-vent calendar', with depressing messages behind the 24 doors, was reused from an old episode of C4's Eight Out Of Ten Cats Does Countdown. He didn't even try to pretend it was new. That's hardly entering into the spirit of things.
Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail, 10th December 2020
Actual Christmas nuts watching might have felt a little twinge of recognition in his grating enthusiasm.
Emily Baker, i Newspaper, 9th December 2020
This curmudgeonly festive comedy was a downbeat delight.
