    It will take at least until the end of this six-episode run – and hopefully a few series more – to discover whether either Andrew or Stephen can really change. ... It is a testament to the masterful construction of this comedy-thriller that it remains possible to imagine they might.

    Any actors who can extract comic value from the phrase “urinal cakes”(Mitchell and Webb); and any team who can make us laugh as we confront deeply troubling mental health issues (what Stephen just calls being “mad” as “useful shorthand”) deserves recognition and the odd Bafta.

    Mitchell and Webb being reunited is exactly the comfort food that television needs right now. Although Mitchell is ubiquitous on TV and radio, together they have a yin-and-yang alchemy that is as soothing as Sudocrem on a bottom rash, even if it is inevitable that one keeps comparing Back to Peep Show.

    Just when you’re settling into this series and thinking, maybe it’s not really anything like Peep Show, Webb says: “Can I apologise for everything…” and Mitchell shoots back: “Everything in the world? The Napoleonic Wars? Smallpox? The cry-laugh emoji? Slavery? Declining literacy rates?”
