I heard Bacon's show and the three guests and Bacon all loved it.
However on Radio 4 Front Row Mark Lawson and his guest both disliked it, not because of any worry about bad taste, but they said that for a comedy drama it was neither funny nor dramatic.
So it seems as if we are going to have the now usual split opinion about post-Extras Gervais.
There's certainly a lot of hostility towards Gervais and not just the downmarket tabloids.
I do wish people would shut the **** up comparing one character in one show with another.
