This is Going to Hurt is based on Adam Kay’s award-winning international multi-million selling memoir of the same name starring Emmy, BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning Ben Whishaw who plays the screen version of Adam in the series which has been adapted by creator Kay himself. The first episode launched with 3.2 million viewers on BBC One and received an audience share of 19.6% winning the 9pm time slot across all channel. It went on to become one of the BBC’s top 10 most watched programmes on iPlayer in the first quarter of this year and the series overall was one of the most-watched boxsets between January - March. Evening Standard - “Superlative adaptation of Adam Kay’s memoir is funny, chaotic and heartbreaking.” ????? The Times - “The BBC adaptation is excellent, and Whishaw is a joy to watch…very few dramas manage convincingly to pull off making you laugh out loud one moment ad feel profoundly sad the next.” ?????
