Review

Simon Day and John Thomson travel to Carmarthenshire to draw a rough sketch of the county’s identity by visiting Dylan Thomas’s writing shed and performing pagan rituals in the woods. It’s light-hearted without being silly, irreverent or for a second disrespecting the folk Thomson and Day meet, even those kooky Wiccans. The Fast Show pair have the air of favourite, funny uncles who are mysteriously good at everything. Here they excel at baking, herding sheep and impersonating Richard Burton.

Summary

John Thomson and Simon Day join a pagan group and take part in a sheepdog trial when they visit Carmarthenshire.
