The latest, desert island-set sitcom from Marc Wootton features characters who are as irritating as sand in your swimming costume - but therein lie the laughs. In this episode, survivors Harriet (Vicki Pepperdine) and Douglas (Harry Peacock) find a dinghy, but their plan of escape soon goes awry.

High & Dry review

If you were to think of the worst person to be stuck on a desert island with, Marc Wootton's latest grotesque would be hart to beat.

TV review: High & Dry, C4

Channel 4 is presumably pretty pleased with new sitcom High & Dry. It was originally due to air on E4 but has had an upgrade and now goes out on C4. Is their confidence justified? It is probably down to how much you can bear obnoxious characters.

Review: Vicki Pepperdine & Ellie White's Summer

It doesn't feel like the most original comedy but it is beautifully observed and exquisitely performed.

Due to what appears to be a somewhat glaring career omission, Matt Berry's wonderful Toast is humiliated by his bitterest rival, Ray Purchase, (Harry Peacock) at the Colonial club, after it emerges he's never trodden the boards at the Globe theatre. Handily, it has just recruited a new director, the young maverick Daz Klondyke, who recruits Toast for a radical reworking of Twelfth Night, featuring a cast of mostly dogs. Of course, things don't quite go to plan in a turn of events that could threaten Toast's very career. Last in the current series.
