“We always wanted it to be funny but a lot of the humour really came through when we got the cast and we started to rehearse with them,” Irvin said. “Josh is talented — he writes, directs and performs so we worked through the scenes. We’d throw around ideas to try and bring the humour out.

The series gently bends your expectations and plays with some modern (and seemingly outmoded) ideas of gender and power. In this story Tripitaka uses the identity of the boy monk to embark on a journey that she, as a girl, would never be permitted to take. Conversely, the restless and disruptive Monkey yearns to escape from her and the magical tether which, effectively, binds him to embarking on the journey to the west alongside her. This is crisp and joyful. A little silly where it needs to be, and not so different from the adaptation of our collective childhood that it's uncertain and unfamiliar. OK, might be a stretch, but this Monkey, like the last, is gently, and thrillingly, magical.
