Once Removed
16 January 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

This is how the going backwards television series Rellik should had worked.

Steve Pemberton & Reece Shearsmith have constructed a wonderful half an hour tale that literally uses the title of the television series.

A removal man walks into a house thinking it is just another normal day at the office. What he comes across is a nervous woman, a man rather flamboyantly dressed and an old man who thinks he is Andrew Lloyd-Webber who suddenly starts spewing blood. Then he sees the corpses.

We then go back a few minutes in time to see how we partially got here and then a few minutes further back and it all becomes clear.

Just a fiendishly written macabre black comedy.
