Storyline

From actor/writer duo James Corden and Mathew Baynton, The Wrong Mans series centers on Sam Pinkett and Phil Bourne, office workers for Berkshire County Council, who have their menial existence turned upside-down by a chance phone-call and a case of mistaken identity. After being sole witness to a car crash on a desolate country road, Sam answers an abandoned mobile telephone and hears a message that was clearly not meant for him: "If you are not here by 5 o'clock, we will kill your wife". Encouraged by office mail-room delivery boy Phil that they can be the heroes of the hour, the duo soon find themselves plunged into a deadly kidnap situation. The Wrong Mans involves a world of unexpected international conspiracy and intrigue, with the mysterious Scarlett and Stevens and the enigmatic secret agent Walker at the heart of the unfurling chaos. Sam and Phil must dodge bullets and escape explosions in their quest to save not just themselves, but their loved ones and ultimately their ... Written by BBC ad

Humour, Drama, shocks and cliff hangers!
8 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I use this site like a bible, usually agreeing with general reviews and ratings, yet I have never written a review on this site before.

The poor rating has prompted a first review, as this show is one of the best BBC sitcoms to find it's way onto television! James Corden's timing is second to none, the writing is extraordinarily clever and cliffhangers keep you guessing and watching each week.

Granted the show is not always laugh out loud, but the show isn't slapstick...It's clever and interesting.

The series is only 3 episodes in, but I for 1 am gripped and those posting terrible ratings after only 1 episode, because they haven't laughed due to there being no 'high school humour' need to get a grip!

9 star, and a genuine admiration to Corden and Co
