TV Review: Urban Myths – The Dali And The Cooper

Of all the Urban Myths episodes I've watched so far The Dali And The Cooper is probably the most filmic and easily the most trippy. Maybe not surprising as it was directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, who made the Nick Cave movie 20,000 Days On Earth and have also staged performance art events such as recreating David Bowie's famous Ziggy Stardust farewell gig. Surrealist Salvador Dali and snake-cuddling rocker Alice Cooper seem like the perfect subjects for them.

News: Noel Fielding To Return To Bake Off For Second C4 Series

Noel Fielding  is set to return to The Great British Bake Off for another series.

The news was confirmed this morning (Tuesday, October 31). The final is due to be broadcast tonight at 8pm.

The other members of the team Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith and Sandi Toksvig, will also be back.

The announcement has been slightly overshadowed by Prue Leith accidentally revealing the winner of the show in advance on Twitter this morning, posting: "I wanted them all to win. Bravo XXXX (name redacted by BTJ).


TV: Upstart Crow, Food Of Love, BBC2

This second series of Upstart Crow has felt a little under the radar. I'm not sure whether that is to do with the blink-and-you'll-miss-it 8.30pm scheduling or the fact that we are now not so pleasantly surprised by Ben Elton's Blackadder-ish turns of phrase as we were first time round. It's been good but it has not really blown me away.

TV: Upstart Crow, BBC2

Ben Elton’s eloquent defence of the mainstream sitcom last month was illuminating, fascinating and persuasive. And in a way maybe it could be seen by some as an incidental pre-emptive strike against critics who might have their hatchets sharpened for the new series of Upstart Crow, Elton’s popular sitcom about Shakespeare’s early years starring David Mitchell.
