Josh is a British sitcom television series about three young adults who share a flat near Holloway Road in north London.[1] The series was created by and starring comedian and namesake Josh Widdicombe. A pilot episode aired in 2014 as part of the BBC "Comedy Feeds", and a full six-episode series aired from 11 November to 16 December 2015 on BBC Three.[2] A second series of Josh was released from 22 September 2016 on Three's now online-only channel.[3] The day that the final episode of series two aired on BBC One, the BBC announced it had commissioned a third series, which was released on 2 October 2017.[4]


Critical reception

In their review of Josh, The Independent commented that there was "nothing original or remarkable about the set-up - or much of the script - but there's promising chemistry between its stars." They said that the main actors were far too old to be convincing 20-something university pals. However, they singled out Edmondson as "very watchable", saying her "comic timing stuck out".[6]

The Arts Desk was scathing about the series, saying "It's horribly bland and it's difficult to see how Josh can avoid suffering the ignominy of lasting only one series".[5]

The Guardian thought there was "a nice chemistry" between the three main characters and the series was funny "in a nice, cosy, safe, familial, familiar kind of way".[7]

Chortle said "the comedy, which returns to BBC Three tomorrow despite a tepid critical response last year, is technically competent and adheres to all the rules of the genre: the scenes are tight and each line works towards a gag. But it’s also bland, lacking a strong personality or deeper purpose other than to deliver contrived lines. Nothing much has changed since the first series".

DVD releases

A DVD set containing the episodes of the first series was released on 5 September 2016.[8] A second series DVD set was made available on 31 October 2016.[9] A third series DVD set was made available on 13 November 2017.[10]
