Further details

Writing on his blog, Dave Gorman says: "It's fair to say that my stuff doesn't always lend itself to being chopped up... there are too many connections and threads. For instance... there was a section in Series 1 that involved an ad van turning up at a petrol station. It got a really big reaction... but in order for it to make sense, you'd need to see about 75% of the episode it's in. At which point it doesn't really feel like a compilation. So obviously that isn't in it.

"But there are also plenty of other bits that work just fine in isolation - and I'm impressed with the way they've managed to structure the shows so that separate threads are maintained in different ways. And more than anything else, it leaves me feeling very proud of just how densely packed each series has been. Well that and, 'blimey, my beard is much greyer now and that was only three years ago.'

"There are some not-been-on-the-telly-before bits in the shows, including a Found Poem in the first episode."


Available to stream on-demand on UKTV Play from Wednesday 2nd September.
