Much as I enjoyed the original stage productions of the various plays that started this concept when I saw them in the West End, I can't help feeling that these half hour shows are all too rushed. There's too much happening too quickly. There's only so much slapstick that one can take in thirty minutes.

In the opposite way as half hour sitcoms rarely transferring well to a 90 minute film because the plot has to be stretched out too much, this does not transfer well to a half hour TV comedy because the plot has to be condensed too much.

I'm not entirely sure. I don't think so, but with the way things are working with(out) audiences these days, I'm not certain. We're unaware of any kind of public events having taken place though, virtual or otherwise.

Henry Lewis said on Twitter they're shooting early in the new year.

Series 2 starts Monday 27th September at 20:30 on BBC1.

Best news of the year, no series made me laugh more, especially A Trial To Watch.
