It’s something of a quiet one this week, with only one new show to see!
The Big Fat Quiz of Everything
Tuesday, 9:00pm, Channel Four
It’s fast become a tradition for households across the land to grab notepads and biros, and try to play along with television’s longest, but most entertaining quiz show in all it’s various forms. Last week it was time for the annual review of the last twelve months, with Richard Ayoade on hand, but Ayoade also returns alongside Noel Fielding for The Big Fat Quiz of Everything this week.
While we wait for the first glut of new shows, here are some selected highlights you may have missed over Christmas and New Year which are available on catchup.
Matt Berry wished in the new year with a fresh edition of his iPlayer shorts series, Matt Berry Does… whilst also joining Simon Day in Professor Branestawm Returns. Elsewhere, Harry Peacock played Michael Mills in We’re Doomed: The Dad’s Army Story and Richard Sandling was the butt of many a fat joke from Catherine Tate’s Nan.
Paul Kaye cropped up as the villainous Bogeyhunter in Fungus The Bogeyman whilst Matt Lucas played hapless Nardole in Doctor Who: The Husbands of River Song. Back in comedy land, there were supporting roles for Morgana Robinson, Barunka O’Shaughnessy and Colin Hoult in Walliams & Friend, and Rebecca Front popped up in David Walliam’s other project, Billionaire Boy.
