British Comedy Guide, 15th January 2018

Nothing says Christmas like a fusillade of puns. Happily, that's just what Tim Vine - travelling not just in time with this show, but all the way from radioland - has got in store for us. In what is essentially Mr Benn but with nearly real people such as Emma Bunton, Tim travels from his antiques shop to Tudor England, where he lands a role as Henry VIII's jester. Appearances also from Sally Phillips and Rev Richard Coles.

Tim Vine Travels In Time preview

The most obvious bit of time travelling that Tim Vine has achieved with this pilot is to propel it about six hours ahead of where it should be in the schedules. For there's no denying that with its cheap sets and cheesy jokes this has the feel of a kids' show, out of place in a 10.35pm slot.
