Tim Vine on quitting Not Going Out: 'I didn't want to do it forever'

13 February 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Tim Vine has spoken about his decision to quit Not Going Out.

The comic starred in the BBC One sitcom between 2006 and 2012, but did not return for its sixth series in 2013.

Vine told Digital Spy that he "really enjoyed" his time on the Lee Mack comedy and still watches it "whenever it is on".

"I just felt like I didn't want to do it forever," he said. "It is nice to keep moving - move with the times and all that."

Vine will star as Beach the butler in series two of BBC One's Blandings, which begins on Sunday, February 16 at 6.30pm.

"Blandings is a perfect example, because it was a period piece," he explained. "I thought, 'I would love to do something like that' which is why I was pleased when it came up."

Not Going Out is expected to air its seventh series later in 2014.

Slapstick Festival, CarnyVille: this week's new film events

17 January 2014 11:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Slapstick Festival | The Loco London Comedy Film Festival | Rybczynski: Exploring Space | CarnyVille

Slapstick Festival, Bristol

With Buster Keaton back in cinemas (The General is on reissue and there's a retrospective at London's BFI), it's a good time to brush up on silent comedy, and this festival, celebrating its 10th anniversary, has done much to spread the word, or maybe the subtitle. This year Charlie Chaplin takes his turn in the spotlight and marks the 100th anniversary of his Little Tramp incarnation, with Omid Djalili introducing an orchestra-backed screening of City Lights at Colston Hall on Friday. The seen-it-all crowd will be more intrigued by celebrations of forgotten stars such as Constance Talmadge, Raymond Griffith and Max Davidson. More up to date, Tim Vine explains why he loves Benny Hill (Watershed, 26 Jan), and Phill Jupitus asks Paul McGann and Ralph Brown about the making of Withnail & I (Bristol Old Vic, 26 Jan).
