A sexy role at last!
24 June 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this programme. Steve Coogan's usual roles involve him being slightly if not completely obnoxious for laughs, showing complete ineptitude in social situations.

The Pepys role however, really let him show another side of his character, and I'd love to see more. I found the character to be sexy, vulnerable and irreverent, intelligent and naughty, a very appealing proposition. Like Rowan Atkinson in the earlier Black Adder series, he shows funny men can be extremely sexy when they take up struggle of an everyman who rather than being the lowest common denominator, is closer to the average thinking man. Someone who can be rational and intelligent, who loses but sometimes wins in social and sexual games, and in love, and has real emotional struggles. More parts like this for Coogan would be great. There is enough buffoonery on the political scene to make me crave sexy funny intellectuals in entertainment. Am I alone?
