Review

Pointless’s Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman guest-star as themselves when Lee and Daisy appear on the blockbuster BBC1 daytime quiz show.

Of course there are two big hurdles – Lee (Lee Mack) knows nothing about anything and Daisy (Katy Wix) is so exquisitely stupid she thinks that The Prisoner of Azkaban is a book of the Bible.

This is the perfect comedy set-up and they both fall headfirst into every comic trap that’s been carefully built for them, from Lee’s woeful knowledge of American presidents to Daisy’s pathological insistence on taking absolutely everything she is told, literally (Wix is brilliant, by the way).

Armstrong and Osman have some fun, too, with Armstrong twinkling and flirting with Lee and Daisy’s friend Lucy, and Osman becoming a gimlet-eyed avenger when he sees right through a craven Lee.

Summary

Daisy wins a place on TV quiz show Pointless and chooses Lucy as her partner - but changes her mind when Lee convinces the women of his intellectual prowess. The only problem is, he wasn't entirely honest with his friends, and now he has to appear on the programme knowing he's really a bit thick. Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman guest star in the sitcom, with Lee Mack, Sally Bretton and Katy Wix.
