Don’t miss ‘The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff’ on BBC iPlayer! @iammarkevans

I watched The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff on BBC2 last night and couldn’t recommend it more highly. It’s got an incredible cast which includes Stephen Fry, Robert Webb, David Mitchell, Celia Imrie, Johnny Vegas…the list goes on. It’s also written by the brilliant Mark Evans who has already written four series of Bleak Expectations for Radio 4 (and who you can follow on Twitter at @iammarkevans). This was not just slightly good comedy but it was classic British humour at its very best. I really wish there were more programmes like this around but I can only imagine that the reason there aren’t is that writing talents like that come along only perhaps once in a generation. You can see it on iPlayer and I’m delighted to hear that there are three more episodes still to come. A big and explosive thumbs up to the BBC for creating such a wonderful piece of comedy drama.
