Episode 8: A Couple of Ethels

Summary

Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell continue their quest to join the elite pantheon of greats who get to put `Taskmaster Champion" on their business card. This week, Desiree draws on her face, Guz endures a ball to the groin and Alan loses an eye. As usual, Greg Davies sets the tasks, while Alex Horne offers the contenders moral support

Review

Alan Davies is the most relaxed contestant this show has had for a while. It rarely feels like he’s sweating over tasks or straining to be funny — although, being Alan Davies, he can’t help being funny anyway.

Contributions tonight include wresting with popcorn and thread to make a necklace, which does make him mildly tense (“I recently completed a master’s degree!” he protests) and explaining the point of sport to Victoria Coren Mitchell.

Best of all, he offers “something of a life hack” in the prize task, a way to use a child’s toothbrush, the kind with a sucker on the end, to replace halogen bulbs. It’s genuinely useful. What Morgana Robinson’s uses as eye cream, on the other hand… eesh.
