TV Cream

These are things on here...

Creamguide’s pick of the day

  • The Comedy Years, Sunday, 21.00, ITV3

    And so to the next one, although we’re creeping out of the Cream era a bit here as we get to 1998. Something of a new era, though, as we get The Royle Family, which pretty much kickstarted an explosion of new Northern comedy and kept the likes of John Henshaw and Steve Edge in work for the next decade or so. Been anthologised a lot in recent years, mind, and we’d be more interesting to see more of the concurrent Mrs Merton and Malcolm, which was seemingly considered a much safer proposition – hence its primetime BBC1 placing – but was a huge disaster. But that probably won’t be on here.
