Yonderland review: Season 3 Episode 3

As visually brilliant as it is hilarious.

Sami Kelsh, Cult Box, 31st October 2016

With the Elders in exile and hiding out in Debbie's loft - some of them, like Vice-Elder Flowers, conducting their exile fully nude - Stephen Fry's Cuddly Dick begins the smear offensive, painting Debbie as corrupt and causing a backlash against her in Yonderland. Elsewhere, there's a pretty hapless, Batman-esque vigilante in town - The Bird - followed around by his unwanted but far more effective sidekick The Bee, while Debbie seizes a chance to clear her name.

Ben Arnold, The Guardian, 30th October 2016

Yonderland series 3 episode 3 review

Yonderland's third series is its most confident, consistently fun outing yet.
