And Now For Something A Bit Different-- Julia Davis

From The Guardian-- a really nice article about Julia Davis. She's so much like Julian, she has a boat-load of work out there, but they stay so private. There isn't many public appearances or interviews. Articles are fairly spaced out-- in fact this is the first of her interviews I've ever read. Usually, it's just a run-down of one of her shows. Honestly, Nighty Night is the only one I've watched, although I want to watch Hunderby, if I can find it. Sometimes that becomes the challenge! Anyway, nice article. She briefly mentions Julian and the boys, but mainly it's about her writing style.  

Davis’s most memorable characters are so floridly drawn, they feel like case studies for personality disorders.

  1. Oh my god. I've been scouring the internet trying to find S02E01 of Hunderby for the past 24 hours! It's driving me mad having to be patient. Julia Davis is a freaking genius. Human Remains was my favorite.
