Review: Cuckoo, Series Five, BBC Three, BBC One, iPlayer

The fifth series of Cuckoo is very much what you might call the WTF series. WTF happen to Dale? And WTF is film superstar Andie MacDowell doing in a BBC Three series set in Lichfield?

The first question is given a very cursory explanation. In the first episode Rachel (Esther Smith) is living back home and replies, when asked about Dale, "he's gone". Well, it's an explanation of sorts.

Online TV Review: Cuckoo, BBC Three, BBC iPlayer

TV Review: Cockroaches, ITV2

I don’t know what it says about our state of mind, but Sky has just announced a series about the end of the world, Apocalypse Slough, and last night ITV2 got in on the act early with Cockroaches, set ten years after a nuclear war which has obliterated most of the planet, leaving survivors to scrabble around like some extras in Mad Max but with added jokes.

Opinion: Would The BBC Be Cuckoo To Say Nighty Night to BBC3?

When I heard the news that there was talk of BBC3 being axed to save the corporation £90 million per year my immediate thought was 'here we go again, more corporate codswallop like the thing about axing BBC6'. BBC3 has given us some great comedy over the years, from Little Britain and The Mighty Boosh to Nighty Night, Pulling and, most recently, Uncle. How could the BBC possible entertain even the slightest thought of turning off the channel.
