    Luckily Iain Hollands' absurdist take on the end of the world can withstand the hype. Not only is the cast one of the most unusual of the year, a clever meld of British and American talent... But the show itself is happy to take bold tonal risks, swerving between moments of high drama and laugh-out-loud comedy.

    In short then, the plotting is clever, the cast is great, the intrigue works, the jokes land and it looks a treat.

    promise of deeply unlikely culture clashes and character combinations – trailers have shown Lowe and Quirke pootling around Slough in a VW Polo – is a delicious one. ****
