TV tonight: a hen party faces the end of the world in an apocalyptic new sitcom


10pm, BBC Two

Most of us will have been on a hen or stag do that felt like the end of the world, but the hen night in Caroline Moran’s new sitcom really is apocalyptic. As Zara (Lucie Shorthouse) and her bridal party are getting messy in a remote Welsh cottage, a disease called “crab measles” sweeps across the world. What will these hungover survivors make of their new reality? Several lessons are learned quickly, most pressingly that you shouldn’t vape antifreeze and you can’t live on chocolate penises for ever. Elizabeth Berrington is in her element as fierce matriarch Bernadette and the fun premise is enough to make up for a slightly patchy script. Phil Harrison
