Room 101

Series 2 - Episode 8

Radio Times
Review by:

There’s a lot of sniping between the guests in this edition and it’s this, rather than their arguments for putting scented candles, house guests, wedding speeches and the like into Room 101, that produces the most laughs. It’s perhaps inevitable that when Jon Richardson says he never dances, describing it as “arrogant walking”, Craig Revel Horwood responds waspishly that Jon is “probably one of the dullest people I’ve ever sat next to”. However, following that up by making joke-telling one of his pet
hates is a bit strong. Even Sheila Hancock joins in the teasing, albeit inadvertently, until she gets threatened with being consigned
to oblivion herself.
