Review

In BBC1’s Friday-night run of Would I Lie to You?, Have I Got News for You and Not Going Out, it’s the sitcom that is starting to feel like the weak link. But Lee Mack’s old-school set-up-gag, set-up-gag rhythms still attract audiences of well over three million every week, even if some of us still miss Tim Vine. This week, it’s once again Katy Wix’s Daisy who provides the funniest scene, as she helps Lee practise his magic show before a kids’ party, but takes things a bit literally, warning him, “You shouldn’t mess around when dealing with the occult.”

Summary

Lucy has her god-daughter dumped on her overnight, which wouldn't be so bad except the girl's stay coincides with her birthday - leaving the inexperienced guardian and her flatmate Lee struggling to come up with appropriate entertainment for a bunch of excited nine-year-olds. Lee Mack and Sally Bretton star, with a guest appearance by Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones).
