British Comedy Guide, 7th March 2018

The gang leave home for a real-time episode focused entirely on Beth's birthday meal: nothing fancy, it's just a pub that does two courses for £7.95, but the gatecrashing of the event by Christine (insensitive) and Colin (hammered) ensures it's a gentle fiasco. Basic but reliably decent sitcom fare.

Jack Seale, The Guardian, 19th February 2018

It is the juxtaposition of coarse and gentle that wins the day in this Scottish comedy. Following a routine but invasive examination, Eric is lying prone on the sofa in considerable discomfort. Cue a procession of well-wishers who aim to lift his spirits, but inevitably miss the target.

Gregor Sharp interview

The 48-year-old's fresh face belies the fact he's had to work long and hard to make it happen. Failing hard. Failing often. Even, at one point, failing to land a shelf-packing job in Tesco.

Two Doors Down is fun with a strong cast

Two Doors Down (BBC Two) originally arrived on New Year's Eve 2013 as a one-hour, one-off comedy about a Hogmanay gathering gone wrong. It returned for a third series last night with an episode about another Scottish institution, Burns Night, complete with haggis, tatties and malt whisky, and proceeded to lacerate it for the next half hour.
