The multitalented Sheridan faces an unlikely dilemma whilst filming a swords-and-sorcery epic.
Travel back in time to the 1970s to watch classic politically-correct film Carry On Up The Sexual Harassment Tribunal.
With a skit called Carry On Up the Sexual Harassment Tribunal, this was a very, very silly sketch show. But the weirder things got, the funnier it all was.Rebecca Nicholson, The Guardian, 10th December 2016
Sheridan Smith is this week's guest on the defiantly old-fashioned sketch show, joining in with routines about Carry On films and knackered married couples that aren't sure if they're satirising cliche or indulging in it. The best skits are those in which Walliams and his writers cater more sensitively for what Smith can do: her solo turns as a cruise-ship singer frazzled by failure, and as a wife absurdly deluded about her husband's attractiveness, give the show more heart and heft.Jack Seale, The Guardian, 9th December 2016
It would be easy to mock the easy game show spoofs and the repetitive one-note Middle Class Jeremy Kyle gag but there is actually a lot to like here.Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 9th December 2016
