The Armstrong & Miller Show New Series

From BBC Press Office

The Armstrong & Miller Show


Friday 17 October
9.30-10.00pm BBC ONE (Schedule addition 30 September)


Alexander Armstrong and Ben Miller return to BBC One with a new series of their Bafta-nominated comedy sketch show.
Viewers are treated to a plethora of new characters this series, as well as some returning old favourites.
Among them are the two street-talking WWII pilots, who are back discussing their self-esteem issues; Dr Tia, The White Devil, a self-important ex-pat in Africa who roams the back roads of Botswana saving lives and marvelling at the dignity of "these people"; Dennis Lincoln Park, an accident-prone culture buff who searches for the most valuable art works in the history of civilisation; Jilted Jim, who desperately tries to make friends with the honeymooners in Hawaii, despite his wife not being there; Brabbins and Fyffe, the filthy alter-egos of Flanders and Swann, who continue to sing jolly little songs about surprising objects; and Howard The Weirdo, who pushes people to the limits with his bizarre revelations.

Finally time for new Armstrong & Miller, seems like forever since the last series. Who else is looking forward to it?

So who watched last night's episode? Just watching now, and so far it seems as good as ever.

"It's like so totally disrespecting you, man" but I didn't think it was quite up to its usual wonderfulness. There was one sketch in particular that I thought was just not funny. The airmen and the singers were just as loveable and funny as ever, though.

Which one was that?
I thought the children's presenters was funny, and the 60s sci-fi-ish one was funny, but went on a little too long.

I think the one I didn't find funny was the Star Trek one. The Blue Peter sketches were funny, though.

The one I thought was least funny was the guy who was dumped on his honeymoon one at the end.

I enjoyed it, as a matter of fact Friday night on TV was quite good, HIGNFY then A&M then off to Ch4 for Peep show and then the IT crowd.

A great 2 hours of comedy.
