News: Squeamish Mockumentaries From Matt Berry

Following the success of last year’s mockumentary, The Road to Brexit, cult favourite Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows) returns to BBC Two with four more episodes, entitled Squeamish About... that will take on new themes.


TV Review: Year of the Rabbit

I've read in various advance publicity interviews for Year of the Rabbit that its star Matt Berry calls it "The Sweeney but in Victorian times." Thanks for doing my review for me Matt. I didn't realise quote how literal he was being. OK, there's no "get yer clothes on you're nicked" but then I'm not sure if that actual often-quoted line ever appeared in the old John Thaw cop show anyway. Oh, and there are more laughs here. And a cameo from the Elephant Man.


News: More Toast For Matt Berry – When He Has Time

It looks like there will hopefully be a fourth series of Toast of London. Matt Berry just needs to find the time to write it.

Berry was talking to The Guardian to promote his forthcoming Victorian crime comedy Year of the Rabbit.

The feature says: "Berry is planning a fourth series of Toast of London. He’s just not sure when he’ll have time to write it." He currently has a major commitment to the TV series What We Do In The Shadows, which means living and working in America for three months a year. 


Interview: Matt Berry On Year of the Rabbit

Set in the dark heart of Victorian London, Year of the Rabbit follows Detective Inspector Rabbit (BAFTA winner Matt Berry), a hardened booze-hound who’s seen it all, and his hapless new partner Strauss (Freddie Fox). While investigating a murder, the ambitious daughter (Susan Wokoma) of the chief of police joins them, becoming London’s first female officer. Together, the trio must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians and Bulgarian princes.


TV: The Road To Brexit, BBC2

I didn't write about this Matt Berry one-off written by Arthur Mathews earlier because I assumed it would be postponed when Brexit was postponed. Instead it is going full steam ahead, so at least there is something to laugh about at the moment.
