Fast Show + Down the Line = Not Bad
12 February 2010 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

You can't really go wrong with this crew. I enjoyed the Fast Show a lot and I listened to most of 'Down the Line' on radio 4.

Bellamy's People is basically 'Down the Line' on TV in that Bellamy himself is a character rather than a real Radio DJ.

Down the Line was a Radio 4 show and the first time I heard it for about the first 15 minutes I thought it was real rather than the spoof that it is. It was set up like a phone in show ala 'Any Answers' and sounds very very real until the callers become more and more silly and you realise that your actually listening to Higson, Whitehouse, Day et al. I liked it very much and the last ghost episode was actually very spooky.

Having survived the ghost in his studio anyway, Bellamy is out and about talking to 'members of the British Public' - actually characters played by the cast. This is one thing I would say that makes it not quite work as well as on the radio, because you can quickly tell its a spoof as whatever make-up he's under Paul Whitehouse has a very distinctive face!

Also, some of the characters are very reminiscent of Fast Show characters.

Still its a good format and funny, in the same slanted way that the Fast Show was funny. I laughed last night the most at Bellamy questioning the rappers about their names and that if he wanted to be known as 'accurate' then why was his name 'Sniper' (which was violent) and not 'Atomic Clock'.
