Radio Times review

Radio Times Top 40 TV Shows of 2015, #19:

Matt Berry's ghastly, narcissistic but strangely lovable actor has now blared his way through three series, but the inventiveness and sheer silliness of this surreal sitcom shows no sign of getting less funny. The ideas kept coming in series three, which saw the luvvie take on the "feminists" by judging a beauty competition, and then fall for the charisma of Jon Hamm: getting the Mad Men star was quite a coup, but he loves this show. Toast Of London showed that old fashioned daftness still has a place - both in the hip late-night schedules of C4 and the comedy world in general.

Toast of London Series 3 DVD review

Pure comedic gold with a classic feel, Toast of London is irreverent, clever and unmistakably British. The writing and supporting talent are phenomenal but it's the genius of Matt Berry that brings it all together, handing in performances of effortless charm and verve every time.

Toast Of London Series 3, Episode 6 preview

Matt Berry's Steven Toast manages to annoy Jude Law, Martin Freeman and other top actors in the final episode of Series 3.

Ben Dowell, Radio Times, 23rd December 2015

Due to what appears to be a somewhat glaring career omission, Matt Berry's wonderful Toast is humiliated by his bitterest rival, Ray Purchase, (Harry Peacock) at the Colonial club, after it emerges he's never trodden the boards at the Globe theatre. Handily, it has just recruited a new director, the young maverick Daz Klondyke, who recruits Toast for a radical reworking of Twelfth Night, featuring a cast of mostly dogs. Of course, things don't quite go to plan in a turn of events that could threaten Toast's very career. Last in the current series.
