"Cinderella Hancock" (Series 1 Ep. 10)

That's better! - I feel they are getting into their stride now and The Lad was brilliant! Very funny script too. Most enjoyable. :D

The Chef That Died of Shame

This week's offering from R4+, and it's one of those like The Blackboard Jungle where they played characters rather than themselves, but that's as far as it goes as the latter was funny and this was not, being more to do with the later "crew" sparking off each other probably and G & S still not fully having found their feet.
