The show is on a half hour later tonight. Does that mean we have to wait an excruciating extra 30 mins before the e-mails go out?

Also got the nearly. First time - it's always been all or nothing up to now.

Great news. Reading your rejects, I know you've been delivering broadcast quality material. Pleased you're through.

You had a decent run last series, didn't you?

Nice word. It's a strange feeling of happiness and disappointment, isn't it?

This week's must have been a particularly challenging edit, so it's defoniteky a win to make it to script.

Still, that £20 would have been nice!

Cheers! Yeah, I had one 'nearly' and two 'goods' last series, one of the goods being a sketch. I'll be hard pushed to equal that but nice to be on the scoresheet, as it were.

Evening all

Very happy to have found this thread (I've been lurking for a little while).

Just got the nearly email. Which I'm very happy with, with this being my first attempt.

Hoping I can learn a little here.

Do other people tend to reply to the nearly emails to get an idea which gag almost mafe the grade? If so, do you get a response?!

Cheers :)

Congrats that's an awesome result.

Yep, definitely email and ask. Good to find out what worked and also helps to build familiarity with the team.

May not hear back until tomorrow.

Thanks!

Excellent. I sent a bit of a mixed bag, trying to cover all bases. A bit more focus for next week would certainly help!
