Douglas is Cancelled, the new four part TV drama starring Hugh Bonneville and Karen Gillan, made its debut on ITV on Thursday 27 June, and fans were quick to rush to social media to share their opinions of the series (all episodes are also streaming on ITVX).The series stars Downton Abbey and Paddington star Hugh Bonneville as TV news presenter Douglas, who faces having his career cancelled after he tells a sexist joke at a family wedding and a stranger overhears and mentions it online.

Matters are complicated when his co-presenter Madeline, played by Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan, retweets the comment to her two million followers and it goes viral, causing a public backlash.

The series, written by Doctor Who and Sherlock’s Steven Moffat and also starring Alex Kingston as Douglas’s newspaper editor wife, Ben Miles as his producer and Ted Lasso’s Nick Mohammed as a comedy writer enlisted to help Douglas respond to criticism, has divided critics, with the show getting a five star review from one newspaper and a one star review from another.

Nick Mohammed found the disparity in the reviews so amusing he tweeted an image of them. Fans are also completely split in their opinions of the series, which starts off dealing with cancel culture but then becomes another show entirely by the third episode.
