Episode 4: The Customised Inhaler

Summary

Greg Davies sets more tasks to contenders Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell, while his loyal sidekick Alex Horne gets all excited over a task involving a fiendish riddle. In this edition Morgana drenches herself in peas, Victoria learns a new skill, Desiree makes a political statement with jam, Alan piles on the sunglasses and Guz pens a new song

Review

Settle on to a lime-green chaise longue for one of those vintage Taskmaster episodes that come around now and then. It fizzes with irresistible nonsense and oddball finesse, like a game show assembled by Salvador Dalí, Phoebe from Friends and a nine-year-old with a bag of sweets. 

There are tasks that the assembled guinea pigs love and tasks that wind them up. There are incidental pleasures, such as Alan Davies in a Charlie Chaplin moustache or Desiree Burch’s way with a swearword that is unprintable but magnificent. There are discussions of what makes something cool or uncool, Guz Khan’s skill with a pair of croquet mallets and two scenes that Only Connect fans will enjoy: one where Victoria Coren Mitchell tries to solve a secret code and another where, unbelievably, she learns to ride a bicycle: “But how do you make it stop!”
