The last in the series of Jolyon Rubinstein and Heydon Prowse's hidden-camera, people-trolling comedy finds them taking to the streets, donning more leaden personas and saying proactively awful things to the general public in order to film their baffled reactions. When they get access to targets actually worth lampooning, such as officials at the Chinese embassy, or MEPs in Strasbourg, the gags fall predictably flat. Farewell to this toothless, sub-Day Today guff.

Ben Arnold, The Guardian, 31st January 2017
