Katie Tyrrell

It is rare for me to recommend a programme that I have not been able to listen to but this new series strikes me as a risk worth taking. Why? Because it stars Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey), whose comic acting I greatly admire, and it is produced by Katie Tyrrell, who has Just a Minute and Clare in the Community among her many Radio 4 production credits.

The idea sounds strong too: Horne plays Stuart, a man recently made redundant by the Job Centre who finds himself in the invidious position of having to queue up with his former clients to be interviewed by his former colleagues. Watch this space...
