I might (if you're up for it Chez) go to the Kilburn festival to see Imelda May beforehand. She's on at three and it's free :) . I'm aiming to get to the BBC for 5pm to start the queue, so anyone getting there later can join us

"And he was dead all along... I didn't see that coming!"
Bag of kittens
Retakes of Greenwich, home of The Mean Time (HUSBAND AGAIN!!)
Being told *not* to laugh
PORRIDGE!
Retakes of Angry Angry Dogs
Humphrey's reverb... reverb... reverb...

That is several pints of awesome! I love the whole made-up-feud with Pappys.

Thom seems to be chain smoking! I hope they are cloves. ;)

I only spotted Thom and David. David was the soldier right near the end when the man was sectioned. They were all in the end credits though.David is in the second episode.

Sorry, but I thought The Wrong Door was *terrible*. Really unfunny. Disappointing considering so much live sketch comedy these days is brilliant.

They should have given the dreadfuls the CGI budget and let them do a Victorian Greenscreen Extravaganza. The "Sin City" of victorian comedy.

The wrong door was awful wasn't it? They went all out on cgi and forgot that it was supposed to be comedy. At least Pappy's T.V was on after it to bring the funnergy levels back up.

I didn't mind The Wrong Door. Few hit and misses in there but still not bad. Hated Thom's sketch, that was crap though

Dreadfuls are doing Faversham forever at the Leicester Square theatre on 13th October. There's a few good shows on there as part of the Big Joke festival http://www.leicestersquaretheatre.com/events.asp
