Rave ‘Radio Times’ review for ‘Newfangle’

ATT’s latest comedy offering ‘Newfangle’ (BBC Radio 4), starring Russell Tovey received a rave review from the Radio Times. I love this. I love everything about it - from Russell Tovey’s aping of the lowly hominid of the title who invents language to express his unrequited love and his protests about always being beaten up by the alpha male, to Adam Rosenthal and Viv Ambrose’s gloriously scrumptious and clever script.” “Set in the primordial mud, a group of apes on the brink of evolving into humans grapple with those things that progress entails. And yet, their hierarchies and obsessions seem awfully familiar and modern. Probably coming to a TV series near you. Og me if it doesn’t!
