I do like Upstart Crow, Ben Elton's formulaic, old-fashioned but warm and funny comedy centred on William Shakespeare starring David Mitchell.

But, of course, obviously, naturally, it goes without saying, et cetera, et cetera, there were a fair few jokes bashing Brexit, trashing Trump and trumpeting immigration. 

It wouldn't be a BBC comedy without such things these days, would it?

Little bit of politics there, little bit of politics.

  1. I enjoyed the bits of the first series I saw. I think I can take the PC content if it indulges in the anachronistic humour. I enjoyed that one set in Roman times as well...temporarily forgotten its name. Not the Frankie Howerd one...the more recent one I mean. Though Up Pompei had its moments.
