Dara O Briain hosts this riotous video-game panel show, which sees two celebs (Susan Calman and David James this week) battling it out in a series of digital death matches with classic games like Tetris and Tekken alongside more modern challenges.

It's a fun and appealingly tense hour of telly, but frankly it's hard to know who this show is for – gamers will doubtless find it patronising (and inferior to actually playing the games themselves) while non-gamers probably wouldn't have tuned in in the first place. A few touches show glimmers of promise - the spinning set is endearingly awkward, and the final round is inspired - but overall, this could be an early Game Over.


The comedian delves into the virtual world of the gaming industry, with comedian Susan Calman and England goalkeeper David James.
