I'm becoming immensely taken by the performance of Lolly Adefope as the infuriating, virtue-signalling trainee Mimi in this series of Damned, the latest of which was bumped over till next week in order to rush in a Hawking tribute. (I assume the Beeb is holding its Jim Bowen tribute back for a more considered approach.) Mimi has turned the taking of offence into an art form, schooled in all the right phrases yet able to boast zero experience of life, and could so easily have been a stereotype; Adefope manages, against high odds, to imbue her with a smidgen of self-aware humanity. Damned must be damned difficult to write, having to tread hair-trigger lines between so many sensitivities. To carry it off, and to make it funny, is a ridiculous success.
