A Novel About Russian Gulags

Series 8 - Episode 2 A Novel About Russian Gulags



“It’s a very rare treat on a television programme to see someone lose their job on a different television programme,” laughs Greg Davies after The Chase’s Paul Sinha once again demonstrates his deft ability to make a pig’s ear out of a seemingly simple task.

This is another hoot of an episode that sees unmentionable items being glued to faces and a brilliant game dubbed ‘bird grape torch’. While the things comedians will do for a laugh never ceases to amaze, tonight’s best moment is when Joe Thomas and Sian Gibson meet for the team task. When a programme is able to create real humour from two people simply walking into a room, you know it’s doing something right.


The race continues for Taskmaster Greg Davies's alluring golden head trophy. Today, an interesting selection of facial hair and a fascinating collection of continuous noises.
