Reviews of Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing (*****) and The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk (***).

Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail, 5th August 2019

Talking shoes, a singing front door and lots of dog poo in these two 10-minute oddities in which Spencer Jones's Herbert, a father of two who goes to car boot sales, allows his warped imagination to run wild. It feels like a CBBC show - and at times this trippy "comedy" is reminiscent of "clownish" Claypole in early Rentaghost - except for the profanity and sheer creepiness, especially the fake eyeballs. I wish I could "unsee" this...

TV Review: The Mind Of Herbert Clunkerdunk

What is particularly impressive here is how he has transferred his stage madness so well to the screen. Even the credits are an excuse for more gags. Jones simply doesn't miss a trick or a chance of a laugh anywhere.

Review: The Mind Of Herbert Clunkerdunk

Amid the trend for meaningful, realistic comedies such as Fleabag, how refreshing it is to have The Mind Of Herbert Clunkerdunk back for a full(ish) series of unadulterated, visually stunning stupidity following a successful pilot last year.

Clunkerdunk & comedy shorts are bringing silliness back

Once a ten-minute pilot from BBC's batch of shorts, Spencer Jones' oddball comedy harks back to the days of The Goon Show and Monty Python.

BBC Comedy Shorts 2018 review

If the BBC's Comedy Shorts seasons is intended as a testbed for possible new series, the comedians in this year's class seem to have missed the email. For although one or two have repeat potential, none feel like pilots in the conventional sense. Rather they are self-contained short films, and all the more satisfying for that.
