Season One Review
24 July 2019 | by southdavidSee all my reviews

Occasionally C4 comedies can be a little too preoccupied with being quirky, at the detriment of being funny. I'm happy to say that "Year of the Rabbit" was not one that fell into this trap.

The show stars Matt Berry as Detective Inspector Rabbit, a brutish Victorian era policeman whose given two new partners; Strauss (Freddie Fox) a University Graduate unused to inner city life and Mabel (Susan Wokoma) who desperately wants to be a detective but is both black and female at a time when being either should have it impossible. Together they become aware of a dangerous cult that is operating in the area.

Though the first episode was a bit patchy, I felt like the series picked up pretty quickly and generally had me laughing in each instalment. Matt Berry is playing the same character he always does - fortunately I'm not fed up with him yet. But much of the humour comes from the supporting characters, particularly Tanner, a rival policeman played by Paul Kaye, and always whenever David Dawson appears, in unrecognisable prosthetics, as John Merrick.

I accept it's not for everyone, the language is strong and there are a few scenes of a sexual nature but ultimately I enjoyed it and hope that the tease at the end of the run leads on to a second series.
