Just a quick recommendation for an upcoming comedy programme on BBC 2, called Count Arthur Strong. It's going to be shown next Monday evening at 8.30. I don't know whether this is going to be a series, or a one-off.
I've enjoyed the radio version of this (on Radio 4 extra) for some time, and hopefully this will translate well to TV. Well worth at least a try, given the rubbish that's currently around!
I quite agree, Tom, this looks very promising. The radio series was great, and the TV series is co-written by Graham Linehan, (co-writer of Father Ted), and also has Rory Kinnear (son of Roy Kinnear) in it. Rory is a fantastic actor, Shakespeare and all, so I can't wait to see him doing comedy.
