LAST GASP of the short-lived craze for Comedy Store Players-centric ‘improv comedy’, with Paul Merton, Josie Lawrence and chums making up a sort of time-hopping ‘bonkbuster’ parody as they went along based entirely on ad-libbed suggestions from the studio audience. A lot more fun than it sounds, honest.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
“Once upon a time, the end!” Really enjoyed this last week, the best episode for ages and Capaldi was great in it. We should have fewer episodes set in space and more set in chic modernist brasseries, because they certainly have more relevance to our lives. Jon P’twee used to say there was nothing scarier than a yeti on the toilet in Tooting Bec, perhaps we can update that to a Cyberman in Café Rouge, or a Sontaran in Starbucks. Apparently this one’s not quite so good.
