Holby City, David Walliam’s New Sitcom, And A New Red Dwarf Series Update
Top episode of Holby City this week, great final scene with Michael Spence showing, with a very hands on approach, why the hospital’s new referral system is not working.
David Waliams In New School Based Sitcom
David Walliams is set to play a chemistry teacher in love with a colleague in this new BBC sitcom, that has a working title of Autumn Leaves. Set in a secondary school, the new comedy is described as being “as if Grange Hill has met Remains Of The Day“. The show is written by Walliams and the Dawson Brothers and will be screened with air with six episodes to start.
Sounds an interesting one, David Walliams has shown himself to be a talented actor and comedian, and with him on board as writer too, sounds like one to watch out for.
BBC1 controller Danny Cohen said on the news of David’s new sitcom, that it was “brilliant to see such a great talent being so passionate about working on the nation’s favorite channel”, which to be fair is a matter of opinion on the ‘nations favorite channel part’, but yes, some fresh comedy on BBC1 in the style of a sitcom, is a good call.
Red Dwarf Returns
The return date for the latest serious of Red Dwarf has been confirmed as Thursday 4th October on Dave. Great news for fans of the cult sci-fi comedy, and if you have yet to watch the show Dave regularly repeat the old episodes from the long running show, so you can catch up with past episodes.
