The best new TV comedies of October-December (Part 1)

Here's part 1 of the best new TV comedies that have aired in the UK over the last three months...

Sophie Davies, Cult Box, 15th December 2018

While lacking the vulgar blunt force of her other show, Catastrophe, this Sharon Horgan-created series is more agreeably scabrous than most primetime comedy. In tonight's penultimate episode: mild criticism at a team-building event sends Laura into a shame spiral, and Alison reacts badly to news of her partner's low sperm count.

How my £10,000 therapy inspired a new TV comedy

An ex-Observer journalist on her battle with depression, and the creation of a celebration of women with complicated lives.

Lorna Martin, The Guardian, 3rd November 2018

Far more delightful [than The Bisexual] was Women on the Verge, a wonderful adaptation, by the Observer's friend and ex-colleague Lorna Martin, of her grand book Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Now set in Dublin, it's spritzy and filthy and honestly, deeply funny, and has the imprimatur of Sharon Horgan, who will end up playing against type. It's a three-lass vicious, honest comedy, and I still marvel at the fact there are still a number of 31-year-olds who haven't written about being chucked/angsted/drunk/in love with the wrong man. Horgan and Martin have taken the bones of a confused depression of old and sprinkled some laughter and zhuzz. Thus something has been lost, something won. The three laugh-out-loud actresses are wonderful and so good to see Nina Sosanya back again.

Women on the Verge review

Sharon Horgan's scabrous comedy is so Sex and the City, it's almost cliched

Benji Wilson, The Telegraph, 12th October 2018

Women on the Verge is your new must-watch comedy

Sharon Horgan strikes gold again with this brutally honest series about three women whose lives are messy, boozy and filled with terrible, terrible men.

Alex Fletcher, BT, 11th October 2018

Review: Women on the Verge

It picks away at modern neurosis the way you pull at a loose stitch, or the quick of your thumb - with the funny, fierce instinct that everything, and everyone, is steadily unravelling.

Peter Crawley, The Irish Times, 11th October 2018

Women on the Verge review

A scabrous creation from Sharon Horgan that doesn't quite hit the peaks.

Lucy Mangan, The Guardian, 11th October 2018
