Last year, the show‘s two main stars, Spall and Smith, expressed how happy they were to return to the show for its second premiere, but thrilled to be renewed for a third season for a story that is “the perfect balance between comedy and pathos”. “, according to Smith. “It is such a joy to work. When I first read Series 1, I was sitting in a cafe flipping through page after page. I found it hilarious one minute and cried the next, and I found it to be a pattern that kind of followed itself. I knew I had to be a part of this show,” she said of how much she loved relating to the character of Nikki Newman with all of her idiosyncrasies and the dynamic with her on-screen partner, Spall. “To be able to do that with Series 1 and see what we had done to come out, and the joy at the heart of that show was really special; then being able to do it again for series 2 – what a joy. It’s such a brilliant show and also such a brilliant show to shine a light on a subject that I think isn’t necessarily represented and brilliant enough to give voice to that one way or another.
Spall echoed Smith’s sentiments, admitting the show is one of his “favorite things” to do. “It was like what I expected because it was the kind of show I would love to watch,” the 38-year-old said. “There’s this kind of perfect balance between comedy and pathos, and I get to hang out with Esther all day, which is a great pleasure. We get along really well. She’s my favorite person I’ve ever been with. never played.”
