TV Review: Camping, Sky Atlantic, Episodes 5 & 6

Don’t be fooled by the jaunty sub-Mumfords music at the start of episode 5. Julia Davis’ comedy-drama comes to a head in all sorts of horrendous ways in these last two instalments.

At some point most of the characters have a meltdown of sorts. There were points when I was not even sure if I was watching a comedy, the story was so bleak. At times this was grotesque in the style of The League of Gentlemen, but in some ways it was far worse because it was so rooted in middle class, middle aged normality.

TV Review: Camping, Sky Atlantic, Eps 3 & 4

It’s interesting the way Sky Atlantic has scheduled Camping. The latest series from the pungent pen of Julia Davis is filmed as six separate episodes but is being shown as two at a time back-to-back over a three-week period. Maybe Sky thought the episodes were so good they couldn’t wait to get them out.

Preview: Camping With Julia Davis Comes to Sky Atlantic

If casting is any guide – and it usually is – Sky's new comedy Camping should be very special indeed.

Nighty Night and Hunderby creator Julia Davis writes, directs and stars in this tale of a couples’ camping trip that goes horribly wrong*.

News: Hunderby To Return to Sky Atlantic

Comedy costume drama Hunderby is to return to Sky Atlantic with a two-hour Christmas special. Sky has announced that filming due to commence this Spring.

It had previously been reported that there would be no more episodes, but the special of the series, created by  Julia Davis, is expected to wrap up some of the loose ends. Set in an isolated rural parish in the early 1800s, Hunderby is a twisted Austen world of doomed romance, closet homosexuality and accidental incest.

Classic Interview: Julia Davis

We haven’t seen much of Julia Davis on television since her Sky Atlantic costume comedy Hunderby, apart from all-too-brief cameos in Inside No 9 and Psychobitches. But that is due to change in 2015. Davis, best known for the warped humour of Nighty Night, is due to return in Morning Has Broken, a C4 comedy about a breakfast television presenter named Gail Sinclair battling to save her failing career.

New Interview: Reece Shearsmith & Steve Pemberton

Be still my beating heart. Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith return to our screens with Inside No 9, six self-contained comedies with some delicious shocks and surprises. They talk about the series, their other plans and the inevitable prospect of a League of Gentlemen reunion.
