TV Review: Toast of Tinseltown, Episode 4, Doctor Grainger, BBC Two

Lots of delicious television comedy intertextuality for long-time fans of Matt Berry tonight as he lands an unexpected role in a trashy TV soap.

After going on an acting course in LA run by Richard Chickentoss people are so convinced that Steven Toast must have actually been a doctor before he lands a pivotal medical role.


TV Review: Toast of Tinseltown, Episode 3, The Scorecard, BBC Two

I think Toast of Tinseltown is my favourite comedy on television at the moment. Each episode is packed with so much comic detail and so much lunacy what's not to like? Oh, and Matt Berry's performance as the perpetually incandescent Steven Toast deserves some kind of award. What kind I can't say.


TV Review: Toast of Tinseltown, Episode 2, BBC Two, LA Story

There's been a bit of chat on social media that Toast of Tinseltown is not quite as good as the old C4 Toast of London and that it tails off a bit after the first episode. Well, that's not my experience. Having just watched episode two - the whole series is available on iPlayer but I'm trying to ration myself by watching one a week – it is still as nutty as ever. Maybe even nuttier. Imagine if David Lynch had decided to make a sitcom rather than creepy, unsettling films.

An Actor Prepares – Matt Berry Gets Ready To Be The Toast Of Tinseltown

Matt Berry looks like he is gearing up to make the new series of Toast now that we are starting to emerge from lockdown.

He posted a picture of himself on Twitter with Steven Toast's trademark white streak back in his hair. 

The new series, with the working title of Toast of Tinseltown marks a change in a number of ways, even though the hair looks like staying the same.

This time the arrogant actor has moved to Hollywood and is attempting to become a movie star.
