Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The best family show on the box returns for a third series of colourful, low-fi fantasy and carefully naughty gags. Its inventive, through-the-looking-glass set-up gives the team – in many ways the Pythons’ heirs apparent – all the comedy scope in the world(s).

To recap, housewife Debbie (Martha Howe-Douglas) is repeatedly summoned via her larder to fix problems in another realm. As her still oblivious husband Pete is promoted at work and plans a house move, Debbie is once again spirited away to Yonderland, where the Elders are visited by an old friend – a terribly toupeed Cuddly Dick (Stephen Fry). The laughs come in all shapes and sizes, including an Elvis-fixated spider-man and, hilariously, a flood rescue operation.
