    Raised by Wolves premiered on Channel 4 on 16th March 2015 to 1.4 million viewers, beating the slot average for the channel.

    sharp and funny from the start... Hilarious

    Hannah Verdier
    The Guardian

    the characters are complex, there's a great story and there are plenty of genuinely hilarious moments

    Kasia Delgado
    Radio Times

    terrific sitcom... It’s about time we saw working-class people on TV arguing about books, thinking about the environment and deconstructing gender stereotypes.

    Helen Brown
    The Telegraph

     bright, brash, blinking funny and brilliantly realised

    Full Review

    Funny, graphic and a little bit brilliant in its portrayal of working class life

    Roz Laws
    Mirror

    the characters are sharply drawn, and it’s startling to see a portrayal of council-estate life teeming with creative energy rather than drugs and muggings.

    Adam Sweeting
    The Spectator

    Who can argue with a programme that has ‘there’s no need to show anyone your bifurcated arse cheeks’ as one of its opening lines?
