In his very Mr Bean-ish new comedy Rowan Atkinson reminds us he’s still alive, still kicking, and still capable of tickling our funny bones, raging war against a bee with hilarious results.

Man vs Bee (Netflix) replaces Nicolas Cage’s The Wicker Man retool as my favourite bee comedy.

Atkinson has lost none of his skill and you will watch it quite happily, but it just lacks the genius of Mr Bean.
