TV: Man Down, C4

Greg Davies returns for a fourth series of Man Down and I sense a bit of a theme emerging. He has previously had a run-in with a turkey and in the first episode of the new run of this tragic, anarchic sitcom he has an oversized chicken thrown at him. But that is just a small indignity compared to some of his other issues in this opening instalment.

News: Date Revealed For Man Down's Return To C4

Greg Davies is set to return with his critically acclaimed sitcom Man Down for a fourth series.

News: Man Down Gets Fourth Series

Channel 4 has commissioned a fourth series of Man Down, starring Greg Davies as hapless teacher Dan.

The series co-stars Roisin Conaty and Mike Wozniak as Dan's friends Jo and Brian and Gwyneth Powell as Dan's mother.

The six-part series will return in 2017. 

Real-life former teacher Davies, who will be touring the UK next year, confirmed the news on Twitter: "Delighted to confirm 'man down' will be back for another series next year."




Edinburgh Preview: Mike Wozniak

In my head Mike Wozniak has a little place in Edinburgh Fringe history. Long before free shows were sweeping the awards board his gratis gig in the basement of a restaurant near the Pleasance was the first free show that the Edinburgh Comedy Award panel advised me to check out back in 2008. It got him a Best Newcomer nod and in retrospect it was the shape of things to come. And since then Wozniak – another GP turned comic like Harry Hill, Simon Brodkin and Paul Sinha – has gone onto bigger things.

TV Review: Man Down, C4

Hold the proverbial front page. Stop the so-called presses. Man Down is not yet another school-based sitcom. When I heard that Greg Davies would be playing a teacher in his self-penned sitcom debut I assumed this would pick up similar themes to Big School and Bad Education. Particularly as Davies has carved out a bit of a blackboard-based niche for himself playing Mr Gilbert in The Inbetweeners.
