Trivia

The series was originally titled "Camping", but it was then decided that the show would focus more on one character in the group and so the title was changed to "Robin's Test". However, Julia Davis ultimately decided that the simplicity of the original title worked - so the title changed back to "Camping". See more »

Grotesquely cringeworthy storytelling
21 August 2018 | by themayorofnantesSee all my reviews

Where do you start with this brilliantly written and performed modern day horror. It lures you in with a seemingly innocuous group of friends on a celebration camping trip for a 50th birthday. What follows is an increasingly excruciating crumbling of things held dear as relationships strain and snap, betrayals and infidelities abound, all swept along with masterly writing and first class performances. Highly recommended.
