Review by:

“Come on fate! This can’t be right!” pleads Mark as Peep Show’s merciless writers find new ways to humiliate him — this time by making Super Hans his boss. Mind you, it’s never hard to make Mark (David Mitchell) feel angry and defeated. Dobby manages it just by giving him a couscous salad to take to work — or “My Tupperware box full of tasteless misery sand”, as Mark prefers to think of it.

The couple’s wildly different priorities are illustrated by the fact that Dobby (Isy Suttie) wants the pair of them to go inter-railing for a few months, while Mark would rather be taking evening classes for an MBA. It’s another sharply written, horribly funny episode.

About this programme

4/6. Jeremy finally agrees to leave the flat and move in with Super Hans and Mark employs a decorator to repaint the kitchen, and Jeremy helps out by giving the tradesman free life-coaching advice. Mark enrols on a business studies evening course and meets an attractive older woman. Comedy, starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb.
