Before That Mitchell And Webb Look, That Mitchell & Webb Sound and even before Peep Show, David Mitchell and Robert Webb had their own sketch series on the now defunct channel Play UK.

The series featured many of Mitchell and Webb's trademark subjects, such as spoofs of make-over shows and other dull forms of TV. This series also co-starred their regular comedy partner Olivia Colman.
