Hunderby is the mad woman in the attic of the BBC classic serial. Julia Davis interview: Hunderby creator on giving her darkest comic impulses free rein in the Bafta-winning sitcom. Another beautifully written comedy, just wish she would write more! © 1996-2020, Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates.
More accurately, the mad woman is Hunderby’s Hesther, the rejected “cripple” trapped and forgotten in a lavatory during last night’s special. Registered office: 1 London Bridge Street, SE1 9GF. Hunderby, review: 'cartoonishly grotesque' Julia Davis's twisted period sitcom is a million miles from the primary-coloured slapstick of other mainstream comedies, says Charlotte Runcie Anything by Julia Davies has got to be worth a watch! You can still see all customer reviews for the product. Pleasant, but a disappointment. But by the time Helene’s (Alexandra Roach) post-birth body was likened to “an exploded shark”, I’d got the giggles. Before it falls back in, we will need to get over Hunderby, one of those satires that make you think you will never take a genre seriously again. It was a million miles from the primary-coloured slapstick of other mainstream sitcoms. Dissapointed. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 September 2019.
The 18th-century estate of Hunderby is populated by a cantankerous old pastor, Edmund (Alex Macqueen), his malevolent housekeeper Dorothy (Davis), and a variety of other randy and hideous characters whose relationship changes with every melodramatic revelation.
I wasn't convinced by Pastor John as a character who is central to the series. As was the case with Nighty Night, Davis may never have even intended to make a second series of Hunderby either, but due to the series winning a BAFTA she was (possibly) nagged into making one, and in doing-so dug her heels in hard and just did whatever the hell it took to kill it from being commissioned for a third series in order for her to move on to the next project, and for which I highly respect her for. Not as good as series 1 Funny in part s very crude in others.
We have not seen a new episode of Julia Davis’s cruel masterpiece since 2012 when it won two British Comedy awards. They don't seem to have struck the right note with this one , still worth a view if you are a fan. The first of the new series felt more steeped in Austen and Dickens than du Maurier, but it still required you to leave your sense of common decency at the door. After watching the first series of Hunderby (a show which, at the time I bought it, I hadn't even heard of), I decided to go ahead and get the second series as I enjoyed the first one so much. Hunderby (Sky Atlantic), the darkly funny period sitcom written by Julia Davis (Nighty Night) and Barunka O’Shaughnessy, has returned.
TV Review: Hunderby; Britain’s Oldest Crooks This spoof costume drama is so good, you might never take the genre seriously again. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 January 2016, Hilariously dark and entertaining, played by brilliant actors, and written by a genius.

It’s impossible to print the funniest lines, but the world that Davis and O’Shaughnessy have created was so cartoonishly grotesque that you had to laugh.

Mostly, though, the ink-black humour was balanced just right, even if it was a little on the bracing side. Hunderby is a critically acclaimed British sitcom created b Julia Davis, co-written by Julia Davis and Barunka O`Shaughnessy, and stars Julia Davis. Sorry, there was a problem saving your cookie preferences. Dark and twisted tale A credit to Julia Davis, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 August 2016.
With Julia Davis, Alexandra Roach, Alex Macqueen, Rufus Jones. Hunderby is the filthiest filth, but you can get away with a lot by being very good and very funny. There didn’t seem to be as much of the careful structuring that had underpinned the first series. The depths of bad taste were plumbed from the scatological to the psychologically messed-up, and included a few unsavoury rape jokes. “If I hear one more word about your rancid nethers…” said Edmund at one point, and after a while I knew how he felt. Although there was a welcome touch of vintage Blackadder to the best bits, with the script cloaking a variety of dirty jokes in flowery circumlocution, the script was hung entirely on this premise of filthy goings-on in a decadent period setting. I greatly enjoyed the first series which arced to a satisfying conclusion as a knowing and very dark cross between what "Carry On Rebecca" might have been and a Victorian "Blackadder". It continues to be presided over by Dorothy, the deranged Mrs Danvers. Registered in England No. The series is a subversive and an intricately dark parody of period dramas. I am a big fan of Julia Davis and loved Human Remains, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 January 2017. The interim has brought no peace upon the household. Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for Hunderby - Series 2 [DVD]  at Amazon.com. After a while you started to wonder if it had anything else up its sleeve. Very short and not very funny, and I pesonnal think it is not worth getting the second series! No the same as first series. The usual 'love it or hate it' style of comedy from Julia Davis, which I normally love, but it felt that these episodes lacked something. The series won two awards at the British Comedy Awards in 2012; it also won Davis a BAFTA TV Award for best comedy writing. Julia Davis's twisted period sitcom is a million miles from the primary-coloured slapstick of other mainstream comedies, says Charlotte Runcie. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness. I really wanted to laugh out loud but I just didn't find myself doing it as much as in the previous series which seemed to me better structured and with a better plot.
Try again. The first series premiered on Sky Atlantic in 2012, and the second part, consisting of two 2-hour specials, was released on December 10, 2015. I am a big fan of Julia Davis and loved Human Remains, Nighty Night and more recently Camping however I can't believe that I missed the original screening of Hunderby. Approved third parties also use these tools in connection with our display of ads. More of the same here, with the emphasis on the bawdy and no clear sense of narrative development. Didn't disappoint. The first series parodied Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca to breathtakingly twisted effect, delighting long-time fans of Davis’s characteristically unsettling work.
