The Cleaner – A Review

Cleaner fails to deliver, despite its impressive cast and cinematic atmosphere. Instead, it provides a dull crime thriller with a tired plot and excellent acting from Samuel L Jackson.

Greg Davies of Taskmaster and Never Mind the Buzzcocks fame has taken on a more dramatic role here as crime scene cleaner Paul “Wicky” Wickstead. His world-weary demeanour serves as an effective counterbalance to Helena Bonham Carter’s nosy neighbor character.

How it Works

The Cleaner contains natural herbs which act as diuretics to facilitate waste elimination from your body, including excess water weight as well as dead cells that have built up. It also includes magnesium and cellulose made by pyrolysis and controlled enzymatic hydrolysis of cornstarch which provides fiber for cleansing purposes. If you continue eating sugar, bread, and meat while taking The Cleaner it won’t work as effectively, however most users are satisfied or pleased with their results – over the first year since it’s release there has not been one return of this product for refund – most people should see results that suit them or both!


The Cleaner provides comprehensive detoxification in just one convenient capsule. Unlike some detox products that require taking multiple bottles with various combinations of pills, The Cleaner contains all natural herbs and minerals for internal cleansing into four small, easy to swallow capsules made of vegetable cellulose rather than animal gelatin – providing those seeking animal-free alternatives an efficient method for detoxing their bodies.

Many users report feeling more energetic and their clothes fitting looser after using The Cleaner, thanks to its ability to get rid of waste pounds stored in their bodies that cause them to feel bloated and heavy. Most health problems stem from having an imbalanced, toxic system rather than simply what we eat.

Though our body’s natural internal cleansing systems work effectively for many individuals, our modern lifestyles expose us to more toxins through pollution, food chemicals, and consumer products. Supplements may assist these systems by flushing away extra waste that accumulates in our colon, liver, kidneys, lungs and other organs to restore balance to the system and boost overall health.

The Cleaner should be taken first thing in the morning with half your daily water consumption to help avoid an upset stomach from other detox products. In order to stay hydrated while taking The Cleaner, at least eight glasses of water should be consumed per day in order to avoid dehydration.

Noting the Cleaner contains natural laxative ingredients like psyllium and senna may be important when considering its safety, especially for people with sensitive digestive tracts who should start by taking two capsules per day to ensure there are no adverse reactions.

Detox cleanses should only be performed periodically throughout the year to improve absorption of nutrients, fight infections and flush out toxins from cells of your body – which in turn help with weight loss by relieving symptoms such as bloating, gas and indigestion.

Side Effects

During a detox period, it’s advisable to drink lots of water. Also avoid food that has been processed or cooked before consumption as this could interfere with the cleanse process. Some may experience side effects like bowel irregularity and abdominal pain if they take The Cleaner; should this occur, stop taking The Cleaner immediately and consult a physician asap.

Benjamin Bratt stars as William Banks, an extreme interventionist specialized in helping drug users regain their lives after using illegal substances. William employs a staff of “cleaners,” such as Akani Cuesta (Grace Park), who once was hooked up by William; Arnie Swenton (Esteban Powell), an unabashed complainer; and Darnell McDowell (Kevin Michael Richardson), an honest car salesman whom William has borrowed money from. Back at home his wife Amy Price-Francis) and children Brett Delbuono and Liliana Mumy are eagerly waiting on his return –

This show seeks to strike a balance between slapstick moments, such as William brutally kicking a pie, and poignant observations about ambition and freedom. Unfortunately, its two tones sometimes clash. But despite any flaws it may contain, this series proves that compelling storytelling and stellar acting can often overcome shortcomings.

Greg Davies (Taskmaster) has created a delightful show within the constraints of COVID-19 that’s both funny and original. Each episode plays out as an intriguing, two-person drama; relied upon dialogue and performance alone to keep audiences enthralled. A number of A-List guest stars including Helena Bonham Carter as she delivers roles that are equal parts brash, bawdy and disgusting!


Greg Davies made one of the funniest sitcoms ever with Man Down and now returns with The Cleaner – featuring crime-scene cleaner Wicky as more serious character compared to original German comedy but has still managed to create an engaging mixture of laughter and drama in its first few episodes. Under Greg’s direction, this series has an entertaining bluntness that cuts through social niceties beautifully.

Wicky’s anthology-ish format sees each episode featuring a different scenario and guest star as she helps mop up after horrific deaths, adding an edge similar to a caper movie with its isolated settings and minimal cast – yet, with its melancholy mood, is not intended to be taken lightly by viewers.

British comedy often tackles mortality through themes like One Foot In The Grave or Peter Cook and Chris Morris’ two-hander, Why Bother?, with characters realising they may have only limited time left on Earth. Even within such macabre settings and premises as The Cleaner’s macabre setting and premise, Davies manages to balance slapstick gags such as kicking a pie, with more serious observations about ambition and freedom.

King Orba may not be your first choice to portray this underdog working class character, but he manages to bring life and warmth to The Cleaner with an exceptional combination of physicality and sharp wit. King brings real passion into his performance which gives the role its soul.

The show’s darker tone, anthology structure and claustrophobic settings will inevitably draw comparisons to Inside No 9. Though not quite on par with its predecessor, there’s enough interest here to keep audiences coming back each week – as Davies showcases her ability to create full characters with just one actor; its recurring motifs and references provide satisfying pay-off. Although not an elite form of entertainment it makes for enjoyable television watching in one hour’s time!
