Summary

Taskmaster Greg Davies and his loyal little lickspittle Alex Horne return for another series of the BAFTA-winning Taskmaster.

Episode 7: The Integrity of the Product

Summary

Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell attempt seemingly pointless tasks testing their ingenuity, dexterity and calmness under pressure. Guz currently holds a slender lead in this series, but with four episodes to go, any one of the contenders could walk off with host Greg Davies's gorgeous golden head tucked under their arm. This time, Greg's able sidekick Alex Horne lends his considerable acting skills to a promotional film, while Morgana passes a pole through a sponge, and Victoria tries to come to terms with a swanee whistle

Review

You might imagine a swanee whistle to be the simplest of musical instruments — getting it to work should literally be child’s play. Well, not for Victoria Coren Mitchell, who proves about as expert with it as she was with a bicycle.

She has an advertising jingle to write: it’s like an Apprentice task put through a mangle of absurdity. She and Morgana Robinson each have to sell snakes-in-a-can toys using swanee whistle accompaniment and it’s great to see how different their creative approaches are.

It’s a good edition all round, the kind of high-class nonsense that can put a smile on most faces. And for regular viewers, it’s good to see an old friend, Greedy esq., make a comeback.
