Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Jul 9, 2022

"Well, 28ish Days Later is a pleasant surprise...right from the first episode, this series turned the familiar upside down. Or at least inside out. 28ish Days Later is carefully scripted and soundscaped, with some lovely use of music. But it’s the revelatory information that keeps you gripped."

Fiona Sturges • Financial Times Apr 3, 2022

"28ish Days Later feels out of the ordinary, largely because of its scope and ambition. The tone is curious rather than clinical and the wide-ranging episodes, each of which functions a as self-contained documentary, should appeal to everyone whether or not they menstruate. The sound design is terrific: bold, heady, atmospheric and featuring original music from violinist Rebekah Reid. If there’s one thing this series tells us about the menstrual cycle, it’s that there’s no such thing as normal."
