“Irresistibly, wonderfully, compelling.” The Telegraph, Pick of the Day
“So perfect — an eccentric, wonderful jewel — that initially you thought that it had to be a spoof.... The storm had passed but the directors had taken us, brilliantly and wittily, into the eye of the storm.” The Times, Pick of the Day
“In the end, the typhoon eluded him. This, in other hands, could have signalled a big anti-climax: thrill-seeking without the thrills. But with great adroitness A Very British Storm Junkie turned itself into something much more satisfying – a portrait of someone torn between real-life squalls and emotional ones. Forced to choose between the two, Stuart gave a resigned shrug, packed up his sou’wester, and headed home to Leicestershire to face his responsibilities.” The Daily Telegraph
