Summary

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

Episode 3: The End of the Franchise

Summary

Greg Davies sets more tasks to a team of celebs comprising Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell. This instalment finds Victoria drawing an exploding cat, Alan hurting himself with a rubber band and Desiree doing something inexplicable when faced with sand. As usual, Greg's loyal sidekick Alex Horne offers the intrepid participants some much-needed moral support

Review

A big part of Taskmaster’s charm is the way the tortuous process naturally throws up absurd quotes of a kind you would only ever hear on this show – about three times an episode. 

Tonight’s standout example might be Greg Davies querying the contestants’ approach to one task with the rhetorical question, “So if I go to the Forth Bridge and I spread jam on it…?” – the first time the idea of spreading jam on the Forth Bridge has been mooted publicly. 

But it makes sense in context, as does Victoria Coren Mitchell’s wild guess when Alan Davies is performing a shadow-based charade of…something or other: “A tonsillectomy?” she offers. As is the way of this show, a sense of despair comes as standard: Desiree Burch worries her response to one challenge is so bad, “I feel like I’ve let down God.”
