"It is glorious, artful, beautifully timed, The Thick Of It filth. Thank you, Simon Blackwell."  Sam Wollaston - The Guardian

"Written by Simon Blackwell of The Thick of It and Peep Show pedigree, starring the latter’s double act of David Mitchell and Robert Webb. It didn’t disappoint." Michael Hogan - The Telegraph

"Back (C4), created by Simon Blackwell, is not so much a descendant of the nerd/loafer odd-couple combo as its twisted, distant cousin." - Matt Baylis - The Express

"The script is written by Simon Blackwell and is a thing of great beauty." - Alice Jones - i News
