The show's working title was "Crazy", and the original concept was to have Chris Langham's therapist talking to various celebrity clients. Langham disliked the idea, and suggested that Paul Whitehouse play all the client roles - even though the two had never worked together, or even met. See more »
Does anyone know when this show is being released on DVD? It was aired early in 2005 on BBC but hasn't received a DVD release yet. I really want to get my hands on it as it is one of the funniest shows on TV. Also are there any signs of a second season? The show definitely deserves one, I believe it won a BAFTA for comedy.
Langham and Whitehouse are both excellent actors with great comedy timing. The make up is excellent as Whitehouse takes on many guises of different ages, nationalities and backgrounds, countered by the dry wit of Langham. The comedy they have created is much more mature and heart felt than some of the other catchphrase based comedy on our screens at the moment.
