There She Goes review

Family comedy fuelled by honesty and tension.

Carol Midgley, The Times, 17th July 2020

Jessica Hynes and David Tennant bring the realism of exasperated parents to this often brutal comedy. Three-year-old Rosie is obsessed with Christmas after watching Home Alone and, in a flash-forward to when she is 11, there is a major tantrum about going to the park while the couple consider their relationship.

Hannah Verdier, The Guardian, 16th July 2020

There She Goes, series 2, episode 2, review

All parents have been there - but not quite like this.

Chris Bennion, The Telegraph, 16th July 2020
