Trivia

The series was originally titled "Camping", but it was then decided that the show would focus more on one character in the group and so the title was changed to "Robin's Test". However, Julia Davis ultimately decided that the simplicity of the original title worked - so the title changed back to "Camping". See more »

Gets wonderfully darker with each episode
3 May 2016 | by slightlymagikSee all my reviews

Fully enjoyed this series, albeit a couple of saggy middle episodes, the transformation from first to last episode is amazing, so dark at times and so funny, David Bamber's character especially stood out, painfully awkward to a degree not seen before, taking cringe-com to a whole new level. Big fan of Julia Davis, best woman in comedy, always pushing it forward. If you enjoyed her previous work please stick with this. I have read some other reviews citing how bad this is, this is simply not true, at first the viewer is unsure if Julia has lost her touch but I assure you she hasn't! you cannot take your eyes off the screen in the last couple of episodes, very strong finish.
