Critic Reviews for The Windsors Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

The Windsors was low-budget, crude and rude. But it was all done with such cacophonous relish that resistance was useless.

OK, so the show's not saying anything new. But it is saying it with a new joy: this is caricature to the max.

It definitely fits the brief of lightly pummelling the monarchy and has a genuine claim to the "so bad it's good" tag. C4's [Channel 4] effort? So bad it's bad, I'm afraid.

But, sadly, all the talent on show are let down by a woefully predictable and utterly laugh-free script. Off with their heads!

Apr 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Wrestling with a relentlessly unsophisticated script, the spirited cast try so desperately hard to be shockingly hilarious it's exhausting to watch. In fairness, it has its moments but they're few and far between.

Apr 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Given the helpful stream of supportive PR from the Royal Family, this fine piece of satire is rather timely.

Apr 22, 2019 | Full Review…

All very funny, but you know, it's the kind of chat that in previous centuries would have seen people dragged off the scaffold. So good for Channel 4, I say.

Apr 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Yep, subtle certainly isn't the watchword here and I'm guessing royalists won't be tuning in. But I actually enjoyed this silly, but colourful parade of caricatures.

Apr 22, 2019 | Full Review…

All in all, it's daft but harmless fun.

Apr 22, 2019 | Full Review…

...utterly silly, but very funny.
