“A remarkable documentary, told simply and respectfully.”

School for Stammerers, ITV

“This was a remarkable documentary, told simply and respectfully.”
Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail

“The idea wasn’t new, but the winsome participants and light-touch editing made School for Stammerers a good demonstration of a familiar format.”
Tim Ough, The Telegraph

“II don’t know if the success rate on show here is truly reflective. But I’m not bothered about that, or about the science (if there is any), because I am so absorbed in the drama. Which is an excellent one, with a lovely diverse cast, who have interesting back stories.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

Inside No. 9, BBC2

“Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton’s latest is probably one of their most heart-wrenching and beautiful works yet. A quietly absorbing half hour that wrings pathos from every pore.”
Mark Butler, The i

“Last night’s study in pathos was a beauty… While the tone was maudlin it was also slyly funny, full of passé routines and lines that sent up and paid tribute to the lost art of music-hall humour. Even more impressively, it almost made me miss the days of Bernie Clifton and the Krankies.”
James Jackson, The Times

“The characters were rich, constantly revealing new depths as they bickered their way through a reunion rehearsal — and the twist at the end came like the turn of a knife.”
Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail

House of Saud: A Family at War, BBC2

“The success of a current affairs documentary can be measured by how well it interrogates and explains the world in which we live. House of Saud: A Family at War is going some way to doing that by boldly examining the opaque tendrils of Saudi influence on the Muslim world.”
James Jackson, The Times

“There was no optimistic conclusion to this riveting and terrifying opener. We can only hope that maybe we’ve now had the worst of the bad news, and that the next two films in the series will contain a straw or two of optimism to grasp at.”
Gerard O’Donovan, The Telegraph
