"And then..."
23 June 2013 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The sketch show format returned for the fourth episode. 'Hamlet' ( Jones ) goes to see a psychiatrist ( Chapman ), who turns out to be a fake. Other psychiatrists take his place - they turn out to be fakes too. We see the aftermath of a boxing match ( a sequence originally written for 'Monty Python & The Holy Grail' ) - the fighter's victory was secured after his head came off in the final round. A pair of newly-weds ( Cleveland and Jones ) find their wedding night hampered by her annoying father ( Chapman ) who shares their bed and, as the light goes off, starts hammering and chiselling - he is making a model of the 'Cutty Sark' in the dark! Oh, and the Pepperpots return ( Chapman and Jones ).

A mixed bag in terms of sketches. The 'Nationwide' parody is not in the same league as those done by Stanley Baxter and 'End Of Part One', and there's a film sequence on Westminster Bridge which goes on forever and is not particularly funny. Funniest moment - the Queen Victoria race which utilises Queen Victorias instead of horses!
