Derry Girls finale review – absolutely cracker
This perfectly proportioned ending tugs at the heartstrings, and delivers the funniest TV scene of the year bar none
Rarely does a comedy bow out on such a high
The final series of Derry Girls (Channel 4) has been a triumph

It is a rare comedy that bows out on a high like this
It has earned its right, then, to say a protracted farewell with not one but two episodes
the show does best by getting the gang of five into a scrape then letting them make it far worse for themselves.
The trouble is that a local hardman stands in the way of them and their Rockafeller Skanks.
Claire Danes in Romeo and Juliet idolisation to queueing at a record shop to pick up tickets made out of paper.
Derry Girls has tried to make a virtue out of Nicola Coughlan’s clear lack of availability for filming
