Lucy’s BBC THREE pilot “PLEASE HELP” is now streaming on BBC iPlayer: The show has been met with critical acclaim
- “Either way, this bold step into the bizarre opens the nimble script up to so many abrupt turns and jokes, each wildly unpredictable as the narrative and the characters defy all conventions. The result is charming, bonkers, imaginative – and often laugh-out-loud funny.”
- “Inventive gags, making the most of the visual medium, are packed tightly into these eccentric 15 minutes, while the story behind the strange powers bestowed upon Milly is so intriguing, you’ll feel cheated that the story is over so soon without exploring them more. The BBC really ought to pounce on this imaginative, hilarious premise and sign Pearman up for a series immediately.”
- “I was left wanting more.”
- “The result was both enjoyably wacky, and a clever metaphor about the isolation and the joys of caring for someone. Her love for her nan shone through, even as the drudgery of her day-to-day life was clear.”
- “Our protagonist was both burned out and superhuman at the same time – was she losing her marbles or literally becoming a superhero? We will need a full series to get to the bottom of it.”
