In fact if it was made at all without them it would be lucky to get an airing on  – insert obscure digital channel name here – in the afternoon. The languid pace, the beautiful scenery, two elderly men discussing their heart operations. This is afternoon telly catnip. Not so much The Fast Show as The Extremely Slow Show.

TV: Vic & Bob's Big Night Out, BBC2

First of all it is brilliant to see Vic and Bob back doing what they do best. Being complete and utter tits with a reimagining of the show where it all started, Big Night Out. This BBC version is said to be the show they wanted to make for C4 all those years ago. The trouble is that if they had made this show back then I'm not sure if I'd have been as seduced by them as I was.

News: Vic And Bobs Big Night Out – New Series?

Could the BBC's rebooted Big Night Out be more than just one reunion episode?

Beyond The Joke has heard that when the show was filmed last night at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden it was referred to as a "pilot" rather than a "one-off reunion". There has been speculation that if it all works out a series could follow.
