What lays behind the red door?, 20 November 2015
Author: Paul Evans from Swansea, United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Moss has a new mug, but it's blank. Jen wants the boys to clean their office up, it's a typical IT space, full of mess. Jen wants to know what hides behind the mysterious red door, and when the boys leave the Office she's straight in. She gets a shock and discovers a man in there, a tall, mysterious goth who's been in there for four years, he is Richmond Avenal, a previous high flier who's career failed when he became a goth.

'Goths are people too!'

I loved the scene of Roy fixing the computer and ending up marooned between two girls under the desk, hilarious. I also loved the homage to From beyond the grave with the door.

Great episode, Noel Fielding was really funny, what a quirky performance. He's so funny, glad it wasn't too long before he returned.
