Press

Matt Berry's unpredictable historical satire concludes with a trip to the countryside, the "backbone of the nation". Squeamish raids the archives to give us footage on the occult with the help of "satanic expert Kate Humble", as well as an account of the traditional hunting of the May Queen.
