After appearing regularly on writer Charlie Brooker’s various Wipe series and specials over the years, dim-witted TV personality Philomena Cunk (played by Diane Morgan) struck out on her own in 2016 to make a pair of unusual spoof documentaries .
Tonight’s offering, Cunk on Christmas, saw the star attempt to discover the true meaning of the season, from the time of Jesus (“as a young man, he kept a low profile in the wood industry”) all the way to the present day when everyone festively stares at their mobile phones in silence. Very festive.
But as the carols fade into the distance and Cunk packs up her presenting bag for another year, it’s time to ask the crucial question – what did you think of her latest investigation? Was it a hilarious new high for the character, or a step too far?
Would you watch Philomena Cunk interview baffled real-life experts forever, or is the joke wearing a bit thin? Was it the perfect tonic to a week over-stuffed with turket, tinsel and Christmas schmaltz, or would you have preferred to see it aired nearer to Christmas itself?
