S1-E1 China - The Wall

S1-E1 China - The Wall

Catch Up


Drinking with strangers, grimy hostels and underwear shortages – anyone who says their gap year was the best time of their life is probably lying. This comedy drama, by Plebs writer Tom Basden, about two childhood friends who fly to China on an extended “lads’ holiday” shows the travelling experience in all its nightmarish, sometimes wonderful, glory as they meet a host of eccentric people along the way.

It’s a funny enough first episode littered with tender moments, thanks to comedian Tim Key, who plays a relentlessly chirpy Brit who wants to relive his 90s gap year and The Fall’s Aisling Bea who plays a hilariously bad-tempered honeymooner.


New series. Comedy drama about two British lads who set out on a backpacking tour of China. Sean is horrified to discover that his best mate Dylan has a secret plan that threatens to derail their trip, but things start looking up when they meet two American girls. However, when old tensions resurface and create carnage at a music festival on the Great Wall, Sean suddenly finds himself way out of his depth. Anders Hayward and Ade Oyefeso star.
