It is the year of charter renewal and a critical time for the BBC. The renewal group under head of values Ian Fletcher is tasked with identifying what the BBC does best and finding more ways of doing less of it better. A new challenge comes in the shape of a Channel 4 documentary about a cross-dressing ex Premier League footballer Ryan Chelford.

Cross-dressing ex Premier League footballer Ryan Chelford's appearance on a late-night, midweek edition of Match of the Day did not go well. A summit meeting is arranged to include heads of football, inclusivity and a late curved ball in the shape of head of diversity to try and find a solution to a problem that is getting increasing attention on social media.

Critic Reviews for W1A Season 3

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

It's a brilliant BBC mockumentary series that mocks the BBC relentlessly. The great thing about W1A is that it portrays an organization that is just batty and yet entirely plausible.

Jul 16, 2020 | Full Review…

It hasn't really changed a jot in three series and the concept is, frankly, tired.

Apr 22, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Brilliant, hurrah, [and] joyous.

Apr 22, 2019 | Full Review…

As usual, enjoying W1A's pin-sharp, side-of-the-angels satire was undercut by just one thing: the thought that somewhere in the real BBC there'll be people wondering if all this doesn't sound like rather a good idea (going forward).

Sep 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Some set pieces fall flat, but it is still good at skewering inane jargon and corporate blah -- incarnated, at its very worst-best, by the sublime Siobhan (Jessica Hynes).
