    Davis and De Frond seem primed to move on to movies before too long – with The Curse, they continue to make fabulous TV comedy look easy.

    Unlike the not-that-lovable rogues, the creators of The Curse clearly have a very good idea of what they’re about, and their plan is seamlessly executed to highly amusing effect. They deserve a reward for recovering such an impressive haul of comedy gold.

    However compelling the heist itself is, first and foremost this is just a brilliantly funny comedy, and the laughs keep on coming at a very impressive rate throughout. ... This show is a real treat.

    These people, Natasha told us, were “just existing, like bit parts in someone else’s story” and you got the impression that perhaps just around the corner, a slick Guy Ritchie-esque heist was underway. But in this story, it was all about the underdogs – and who doesn’t love an underdog?

    The Curse is an old riff, being played lovingly and skillfully, over a record you’ve heard many times before.
