Episode 4: Ray BLK James Nesbitt and Pam Hogg

Summary

Musician Ray BLK, actor James Nesbit and designer Pam Hogg sit for the next batch of contestants. Stephen Mangan presents

Review

Composer Nick Harvey’s fairy-tale theme tune and twinkling incidentals enhance the idea of magic being created here. And however much host Stephen Mangan talks up the “undiluted terror” felt by the contestants, that magic percolates through the programme, especially when time-lapse brings the paintings to life.

That said, there is some “jeopardy”: bold decisions such as a monochrome diptych, and a terse volte-face deep into the heat.

The models – R&B star Ray BLK, actor James Nesbitt and fashion designer Pam Hogg – just take it all in. Ray even nods off at one point. No chance of you doing the same: as ever, it’s beautifully stimulating.
