How did this get commissioned?
31 August 2008 | by messagecraigSee all my reviews

What is it with the BBC and producing possibly the worst comedy sketch shows in history? Is it deliberate? I hope so because if the commissioning editor actually finds this stuff funny then the BBC is effectively doomed.

The Wrong Door consists of a stream of wee, poo and bum "jokes" with the odd swear word thrown in an attempt to make it "edgy", evidence of the show's lack of substance and desperation to make any impact at all. In fact, take away the swearing and you could probably broadcast this to an audience who would also find themselves watching Dick & Dom and even then it would be touch and go as to whether they would watch until the end.

The only reason I'd give for watching is so that people can see how bad this is and hopefully it will inspire some good writers to see how easy it is to get stuff on TV and persuade them to come forward.
