Looks like it's going to be absolute genius or right at the other end of the scale. Looking forward to finding out!

Yep...it is the crazy plumber from Ideal! His name is Peter Slater. Well spotted! We need some new comedy talent on t.v. This guy pushes my buttons, I laughed me balls off!

You're the only person I've ever met who puts the dots in 'TV'. Well done sir.

Cool, yep, will be watching.

You don't need to put dots in TV as it's a slang word in its own right. 'Television' is one word, so 't.v.' would not be correct. (Cue howls of disapproval...)

TV is also a slang word for transvestite. Does that have the dots?

On an evening dress maybe.

I think Peter Slater's performance in Ideal was just brilliant. I'm hoping to organise an interview with him for our guide to Slaterwood, but now the broadcast date has been moved forward I'm not sure if it's going to be possible. I'll do my best. Watch this space.

Hello

A message from the makers...

Slaterwood is Critics' Choice in The Sunday Times: 'Peter Slater takes an ordinary situation and pushes it to its ludicrous limits...it is silly nonsense that will make you smile.'

Also a great preview in Time Out, apparently, though I've not yet seen it.

Enjoy the show....

Thanks

Matt

This is on tonight. I'd be interested to see what people think.
