Harry & Paul

Series 4 - Episode 6

Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

“Their comedy is challenging and bold” sing the massed choirs in the Soviet-style title music, but it isn’t really. It’s old-fashioned and crude, but there are moments of well-observed madness that make it lovable. What is challenging and bold is making the sixth episode of series four no more than a compilation of sketches from series three, two years ago. So say hello again to Northern Relief, a telethon organised by the Royal Society for the Protection of Northerners and one of the duo’s best 1930s spoofs, entitled The Original When Harry Met Sally.

About this programme

6/6. A compilation of highlights from the third series of the comedy show, including a rousing chorus of the Van Driver's Lament and more ticket-issuing adventures with Parking Pataweyo the traffic warden. Plus, a parody of On the Buses. Written by and starring Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse, with Simon Day. Last in the series.
