I TALK Siblings

In just over a year, BBC Three is expected to make its move online and on Thursday, they launch their latest sitcom, Siblings, which if you hadn't gathered from the title, is about the world's worst brother and sister.

Every week we'll see them spectacularly wreck the lives of those around them through their own selfishness and idiocy. There have been a lot of sitcoms on BBC Three across the years, some good, some great, some bad. But where does Siblings fit?


So who are the world's worst brother and sister? Well, they go by the name of Hannah and Dan, and are played by Charlotte Ritchie (Fresh Meat) and Tom Stourton (Live At The Electric).

There's a lot packed into the six episodes that make up series one, from pretending to be disabled, making a speech in front of current sixth-formers, looking after someone else's flat only to take on his identity, looking after mother and many many more situations.


Charlotte Ritchie is great in Fresh Meat, and she's good in Siblings, although the boundaries between the two characters (Hannah in Siblings and Oregon in Fresh Meat) are somewhat blurred. It's understandable though. We've only ever seen her in Fresh Meat so therefore that's all we have to go on, and if you look at most actors, you could argue that they too play the same role time and time again.
