TV: Count Arthur Strong, BBC1

It's been a while since the last Count Arthur Strong series but the third run does not mark a significant change. Which is a Good Thing. Our befuddled hero (Steve Delaney) is still as hapless as ever, putting his foot in it at every opportunity and making life hard for long-suffering Michael (Rory Kinnear). The script, by Delaney and Graham Linehan (who also directs) is neatly plotted and regularly punctuated with laugh-out-loud humour. If you like your gags silly you have come to the right place.


News: Third Series For Count Arthur Strong

A third series of Count Arthur Strong has been commissioned by the BBC. Following the sucess of the first series on BBC2, the second series moved to BBC1 this year with the Count getting into more confusion and slapstick scrapes.
