'Finally, a teen production that doesn't patronise its audience or leave everyone over the age of 15 slack-jawed with boredom at the paucity of acting and dialogue.'
'Fergus McPhail is a little gem of a show, an insouciant model of the hybrid comedy/drama at its best.'
'With snappy dialogue that doesn't assume the audience's collective intelligence is in single digits, and cute performances from all the leads, Fergus is quite a find.'

'Fergus McPhail is one of those hapless, loveable television kids we all need in our lives.'
'For children, he's someone to identify with: on the cusp of puberty and experiencing all the melodramatic highs and lows that daily life can dish up when you're about 13. For adults, it's great to watch such a lively script, a series that uses actors of all ages and throws in plots that consider the complexities of life from a senior citizen's point of view.'
'This is another entertaining offering from the production house that delivered the excellent children's series Short Cuts.'
