TV Review: Peter Kay's Car Share, The Finale, BBC1

Well that was about as soppy as everyone expected Peter Kay's very last Car Share to be.

I did wonder for a moment if there was going to be an awful accident because John (Peter Kay) kept glancing at his phone or looking at Kayleigh (Sian Gibson). And in fact the episode did feature a smash, but not in the way I expected. It was caused by Kayleigh getting out of the car to save a hedgehog, causing the car behind to swerve and prang and then for the door of John's Fiat to be sliced off by a passing truck.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Edd Hedges

There is no such thing as an overnight success in stand-up comedy. Five years is probably the going rate from being first noticed to breaking through, which suggests that 2018 could be Edd Hedges year. In 2013 he was a joint winner of the So You Think You're Funny competition in Edinburgh and has gradually been building up his reputation as a skilful stand-up since then. He did his debut hour, Wonderland, in Edinburgh last year and now brings it to the Soho Theatre.


TV Review: Riot Girls, C4

I think it would be fair to say I'm not in Riot Girls' target demographic. Then again i'm younger than former Labour spin doctor Alistair Campbell and he tweeted that this new hidden camera sketch show was the funniest thing since Jeremy Corbyn in a Russian hat. Or something like that anyway. But then again, he was frank enough to point out that his daughter Grace was one of the four budding pranksters alongside Sophie Duker, Jen Wakefield and Cam Spence.

Review: This Country, Episode 6, Family Loyalties, BBC Three

After a successful first series, the second series of This Country has kept up the momentum and high quality level with six more glorious episodes. After last week's classic when Kerry failed to make it to the steam fair the series closes with an episode that has everything. Comedy, poignancy and dodgy Dyson hoovers.
