Ricky Gervais' much-anticipated new comedy After Life debuted on Netflix last week.

The six-part series follows Tony, whose wife has died from cancer, as he attempts to move forward with his life.

His method of dealing with his grief is to say and do whatever he likes, which leads to a lot of black humour.

The show is being hailed as a return to form for Gervais — is that the case?

Gordon Hayden and Melanie Finn gave their verdict in our TV slot.

They also discussed Piers Morgan's ban on guests who only want to appear on Good Morning Britain on his days off, reports of a new streaming service from Apple, and the forthcoming final episode of The Big Bang Theory.
