Reviews

Julia Davis proved that she's an expert when it comes to dark, dark comedy with the terrific Nighty Night With Hunderby, a show that she writes and stars in once more, she proves again that she's not lost that knack. This time, the setting is the 1830s, with Alexandra Roach playing a shipwreck survivor who ends up married to the local pastor. Then in comes Davis herself, the far from pleasant housekeeper, and the tone is soon set for a deliciously uncomfortable comedy.

Period dramas crossed with comedies are rare beasts indeed, and crossed with Davis' extremely divisive, uncompromising style of humour, Hunderby needs you to click into what it's doing for you to fully enjoy it. But if you do, then this is a real, real treat. Outrageous, very funny, and with real bite, it might not have quite the edge of Nighty Night, but it's not too far behind.

All of the episodes of Hunderby's first series are pulled together on the DVD release, and there are cast interviews too by way of extras. It's not the most generous package, granted, but the appeal, inevitably, is in a show that didn't get particularly wide exposure on its television debut. Hopefully, the DVD will rectify that. It deserves to. --Jon Foster

For me Julia Davis is a comedy genius. Following the dark, often cruel but hilarious Nighty Night this period comedy gets off to an intriguing start and then clicks into place with great characters and hopefully sets itself up well for a follow-up season
Helped by a strong cast of comedy actors Julia delivers another masterpiece with strong performances, over the top scenarios and future classic one-liners. Off to bed now with some bubbly milk!

I bought this DVD just on the description of the contents, and it has lived up to it. The humour is very twisted and quite hilarious, just the type I enjoy. I was a bit unsure if my husband would enjoy it as much as me, be he is getting a good laugh from it as well so well done Julia Davis!

Absolutely brilliant! I love Julia Davis - she's superb and can fully relate to her

I thought it was a bit slow to start with but really got into after 3rd episode. Only disappointment is that each episode is 22 mins long - guessing it was because of commercial breaks on SKY

Recommend watching the cut scenes too - as with films some of the content makes more sense

Really enjoyed this and hope a second series comes out and of course a 3rd Nighty Night

Having come to Nighty Night very late and found Julia Davis' writing and acting to be very funny, I was pleased to find some later work. Whilst not as overtly outrageous or laugh-out-loud funny as Nighty Night, this is a more subtle and darker piece. The characters are all brilliantly drawn and the writing is very clever. At 22 minutes per episode, I did feel the story was a little disjointed in places, almost as though it had been cut to fit the time available. Watching the deleted scenes, many of these really should have been included to make more sense of the work. But that said, it's a thoroughly enjoyable series and I just hope that Julia Davis will be commissioned to do more work as for me, she's one of our most talented and funniest actors/writers.

I really enjoyed this. It is very witty from the start. The only thing I found a bit of a bother was the sound levels. Seemed booming loud and then suddenly I was straining to hear, up, down, up. Maybe just me. But really really good.

I adore Julia Davis and this had me LAUGHING OUT LOUD from start to finish.
It's not Nighty Night clearly but easily as brilliant. I've watched it twice in a row and found things I missed in the first watch - I just know when I watch it again I'll find even more I missed.
Utter perfection!

Like a League Of Gentlemen's take on du Maurier's Rebecca. Not suitable for children. You have been warned. I'm off now for my bubbly milk.
