Kevin Eldon returns to BBC Radio 4 tonight with a third series of his sketch series Kevin Eldon Will See You Now.
The first series of four episodes aired back in 2012, with a second set following in 2014. With no further episodes produced last year, it was understandable for many of Eldon’s diehard fanbase to believe the show had run its course.
Fortunately Kevin and his regular team are back for more: that’s co-writers Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris (Philomena Cunk, A Touch of Cloth), and co-stars Amelia Bullmore (I’m Alan Partridge, Big Train), Julia Davis, Paul Putner (It’s Kevin, Little Britain), Justin Edwards, David Reed (Séance Fiction, It’s Kevin) and Rosie Cavaliero (Nurse, Hunderby).
Episode One, Tarquin & the Tiny Studio, airs tonight on BBC Radio 4 at 11pm, and will be available on iPlayer worldwide after transmission. Expect talk of Carpentry, subatomic physics, Winston Churchill and how to deal with troublesome slugs all come under the microscope. Not really the best instrument for examining any of these things, one would’ve thought, but there you go.
