Pompidou

Here's a charming new series from Matt Lucas, one which is suitable for a whole family (that's not something we get to write enough). Pompidou focuses on an elderly oddball aristocrat who has fallen on hard times. What's notable about the series is that there's no dialogue. It's mainly a visual comedy (albeit with some gobbledegook Pingu-style talking). BBC Two, 6:30pm. Guide

Also: A new series for charming prank show Off Their Rockers; and an introduction to Let's Play Darts For Comic Relief, with a game involving Lee Mack. Repeats include a song in Uncle. Schedule
