This starts tonight. Good to have our best sketch performers back on the box.

Uninterestingly, the BCG are referring to it as Series 3... https://www.comedy.co.uk/tv/harry_and_paul/ ...whilst, let's be fair, acknowledging that the previous/1st series was called Ruddy Hell! It's Harry & Paul.

However - and this is where it gets really dull - the BBC are referring to it as Series 2... http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00v36wn

Now, I'm more than happy to believe that the Beeb can't even get information about one of their own sodding programmes right. On the other hand, Harry & Paul is technically a different show to Ruddy Hell! It's Harry & Paul... so the Beeb would be right to suggest this is the 2nd Series.

I will now sit back and watch the debate run and run on this hot potato!! Play nice everyone!!!

I'm looking at it as Series 1 of their BBC2 show.

Thank God for internet forums, I couldn't bare this conversation IRL.

I'll be watching this. Lately they're a bit hit and miss but a miss is rarely a complete disaster.

I am also somewhat uncomfortable about the show's name/series. But I'm also undecided as to what would be best - and there are a bunch of changes to this series again, not just the move to BBC One.

Anyway, I'll be watching.

Just watching this now. There is no laughter track like their last series and I think it is the worse for it.

Not great so far. I always enjoy the Dragons' Den sketches though.

I thought it was OK, but there was no laugh out loud moments. Although "The Kama Sutra it's rude" made me do a little lol.
