Treble top! The film that captures the party power of darts

The showmen, the drama, the mohicans, the maths … House of Flying Arrows is the documentary darts deserves

No one is ever going to accuse reigning Pdc world darts champion Gary Anderson of hyping up the film he’s more or less the hero of. “It’s not as bad as I thought it would be,” he says, when asked what he thinks of House of Flying Arrows, a documentary that follows his progress through the 2016 world championships. “I mean, I never watch myself play darts or anything.

He’s compulsively honest – revealing his bipolar disorder, his long-closeted homosexuality and a nasty abscess that threatens his training – and remains endearingly enthusiastic, although we can occasionally glimpse a darkness through the cracks in his chipper persona.
