Griff Rhys Jones,
Harry Potter and the Secret Chamberpot of Azerbaijan
I only watched this episode. And it was incredible funny, I laughed from beginning to end.
This episode is supposed to be a behind the scenes special of the next Harry Potter film entitled, of course, "Harry Potter and the Secret Chamberpot of Azerbaijan". I'm not revealing you "the secret" in this one -you get to know it from the first minute, anyway-. I'll only say that it explains perfectly well why Dawn French is playing Harry.
The episode features scenes from the actual Harry Potter second film (that is, Chamber of Secrets) but with a twist. So, we get to see Dawn French as Harry (brilliant performance), Jennifer Saunders as Ron (doing what "movie-Ron" does best: screaming) and Miranda Richardson as Hermione (you can only wish she had more lines). You can imagine the result!
The episode also includes interviews with the "actors". They're hilarious. Specially the ones given by the older characters. They actually complain about how they only get a few lines in the movie and so on. Jeremy Irons is specially amazing as the actor playing Snape. It even got me thinking he could've been a good choice for that role in the real films.
There's even an interview with Jennifer Saunders as J.K. Rowling. She imitated her so well It was perfect! In conclusion, if you have the chance to watch it, do it. It's worth your time.
