Critic Reviews for The Wrong Mans: Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (18)

A geeky office worker picks up a ringing telephone at the scene of a car crash and sets in motion a crazy-funny mystery.

The series' absurdly complex plot and genre clichés are clearly tongue-in-cheek, but we still find ourselves rooting for the heroes and getting caught up in the suspense. Light and witty, the series is the perfect time filler.

It may not have the sharpness of a Wright effort, but the show is deeply committed to its world-colliding premise, and trots out a host of serious actors.

In Hollywood romcom land, this would play out as nerdy outsider guy winds up a hero. But this seems to have more guts than that.

[Mathew] Baynton and [James] Corden's refusal to resort to spoof means the characters are likeable, the jokes are properly funny and the action is convincing.

The opener had some neat twists and turns and ended on a great cliffhanger. Definitely one to stay with.
