Storyline

As Andy's useless agent still hasn't managed to get him any work, he takes it upon himself to get his sitcom script read by somebody. He manages to get it to Patrick Stewart, who passes it onto the BBC, who decide to develop it. However, Andy finds himself stuck developing the script with a nearly unbearably camp man, a problem he shares with Maggie, who unwittingly repeats it to Andy's colleague later on, possibly jeopardizing Andy's chances of getting his sitcom made.

Patrick Stewart
9 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Andy might be finally be getting somewhere with his sitcom idea and it is all courtesy of Patrick Stewart who makes a cameo appearance.

Andy is an extra in a film that stars Patrick Stewart and gets to talk to him on his trailer, where Stewart has an idea for a movie where he sees all the women as naked. Stewart's production company has also recommended Andy's sitcom to the BBC.

However the producer assigned to Andy to work on the script is irritatingly camp and Maggie might had put her foot in it by telling the producer that Andy thinks he is too gay.

Stewart is a hoot as the pervy actor, we also get the set up for series 2 with the sitcom idea. Nice to see Andy's agent trying to do a last grasp deal for Barry from Eastenders to star in Andy's sitcom.
