The Wee Review is Scotland’s online arts & culture magazine. You may have known us in our previous incarnation – TV Bomb.

We provide reviews and opinion on the performing arts across Scotland, as well as commentary on wider cultural issues, politics and society. We are one of the most prolific Edinburgh Fringe review websites and have been reviewing at the Fringe since 2010.  Back then, our team of 3 writers covered 7 shows. By 2015, our team of 30 reviewed over 350. We also review extensively at the Edinburgh International Festival.

Year round, we have a 70-strong team of writers, based up and down the country, from Inverness to Dumfries, with bigger teams in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.

Periodically, we do recruit new contributors. They need to be demonstrably excellent writers. They need to be dedicated. And they need to know their stuff. If you think you might fit the bill, whatever your age or background, please get in touch via our editor Robert Peacock on [email protected] or via Twitter.

You can follow us on that and all the usual social media channels. We’d love to hear from you.


Our roots can be traced back to 2008 and TV Bomb, a site started by students on the Queen Margaret University Drama and Performance course.

After expanding beyond the central belt, and beyond our theatre roots, the then TV Bomb team reinvented themselves as The Wee Review on 26 March 2017.
