Crashing: The Complete Series (2018)
Thursday 2nd August 2018
Created by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), this one-off six-part series, is a very modern comedy about a group of 20-somethings living together as property guardians among the abandoned X-ray machines and hazardous waste of a disused London hospital.
Waller-Bridge's Lulu joins her old friend Anthony (Damien Molony), who moved into the hospital with uptight fiancée Kate (Louise Ford) in order to save up for their wedding. Ukulele-playing Lulu is kooky but desperate to fit in, and goes out of her way to make herself popular with the rest of the gang. She and Anthony have history and are just a little too flirty, but Kate tries to play it cool with disastrous results.
The other oddball regulars include womanising posh boy Sam (Jonathan Bailey) I'm an estate agent so I'm allowed to be a t*&t who forms an unexpectedly close alliance with shy, excitable Fred (Amit Shah). Then there s duck-out-of-water Colin (Adrian Scarborough), a sullen, middle-aged recent divorcé to whom frustrated young French artist Melody (Julie Dray) takes a shine.
Tensions escalate as Lulu's eccentric Great Aunt Gladys (Kathy Burke) drops by with some unconventional assistance, and when the housemates are served an eviction notice. Nothing is quite as it seems as the friends fall in and out of love and deal with their errors, faults, confusion and pain, and each episode brims with brazenly filthy humour, surprising shifts in tone and alarming twists of fate.
Crashing: The Complete Series is released on DVD 3rd September 2018 from Simply Media.
