Jack Whitehall is Walter Raleigh

Tom Craine regales us with the story of Sir Walter Raleigh (Jack Whitehall).

The Queen fancies Walter Raleigh

The queen is pleased with Walter Raleigh's efforts.

Robin Hood meets Maid Marian

Tom Davis explains how Robin Hood (Mathew Baynton) first met Maid Marian (Emma Bunton).

Maid Marian looks for Robin Hood

Maid Marian (Emma Bunton) goes in search of Robin Hood (Mathew Baynton) in the forest.


The return of a wilfully stupid format, which asks comedians to relate tales of yore while plastered. Other performers then star in scenes reflecting exactly what the soused comic has said, lip-syncing to any dialogue. It's a way to make improvised comedy less reliable. Not much comes of Jack Whitehall and Michelle Keegan as Walter Raleigh and Elizabeth I, but Robin Hood and Maid Marian, played by Mathew Baynton and Emma Bunton to the blazingly profane imaginings of Tom Davis, is sensational.

Jack Seale, The Guardian, 3rd February 2016
