Review: Have I Got News For You Election Special, BBC1

Not a vintage show then. But then it was probably tough for them filming early in the day after a long night. And it can't be easy coining new gags off-the-cuff when the whole world has got there first.

Review: Murray V Farage: Battle for South Thanet, Dave

Just because we know the result doesn't stop this from being very watchable.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 8th May 2015

Al Murray's spoof candidacy in South Thanet may have gone a bit quiet after the campaign launch and the cash-in book, but that was because the Pub Landlord was out pounding the streets. This documentary follows Murray throughout his effort to comically nobble Ukip leader Nigel Farage: did the two colossal patriots face each other over a warm, brown, great British pint? We're promised run-ins with candidates and voters, which ought to benefit from Murray's skill at sparring unscripted with punters.
