Alexander Armstrong and Ben Miller are reunited in this contemporary sketch show series. It included a variety of characters and situations - most notably teen-talk speaking Second World War pilots.

New characters for Series 2 included The White Devil, a self-important ex-pat in Africa - roaming the back roads, saving lives and fixing his hair in the wing mirror of his 4x4. There's also Jilted Jim, dumped at the altar but still on his honeymoon, turning the lives of other newly weds into a living hell; Dennis Lincoln-Park, an accident-prone culture buff, searching for the most valuable art works in the history of civilization; and the Old Clubber, a forty-something, mad-for-it Ibiza veteran/company accountant.

New characters for Series 3 included two vampires at odds with the modern world and two prudish saleswomen who run an underwear shop.
