Review: Witless, BBC Three

The third series of comedy thriller Witless has just come out on iPlayer in one big five-episode dollop. And if you think Leanne and Rhona are going to be able to go back to their boring, ordinary lives then you clearly haven't been paying attention. These two have about as much chance of avoiding scrapes as Eamonn Holmes has of winning the World Boxing Championships.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 10th January 2018
