Billy Bleach (Simon Day) the pub know-all and compulsive bull****er from the fast show witnesses a gangland hit and is put on a witness protection programme. Harry Taylor the crime boss puts a contract on Billy's head and the story is then a zany romp in to the hapless Billy's adventures set in and around a village in Norfolk where Billy is holed up and being guarded by the village copper and a couple of "cossers" from "The Met". A great cast including the Fast Show's Mark Williams as the eccentric pub landlord, Philip Jackson and his sidekick as bent cossers in the gay way, and Roger Sloman as an older version of the nutter in Mike Leigh's classic "Nuts in May". The locations are great and all the cast are good. I have only seen five of the eight episodes and it seems Harry Taylor's two hitmen are closing in as Billy is beginning to enjoy his life in the village.
For some reason the Beeb have stuck this on BBC3 which means the audience will be minimal. As it happens I think BBC3 are going to be the best comedy channel as it appears to think in the 21st century with shows like "Grass" and "Little Britain" to name but two of a host of fresh comedy.
