Review

A live donkey. A tiny toy giraffe on a snooker table. A lobster used as a measuring device. These are some of the pawns in the Taskmaster’s game this week.

It’s a typically capricious, competitive, knockabout game, too. Liza Tarbuck in particular is proving herself a fearsome task-ee this series: her solution to the challenge of pulling off an elaborate trick shot on an outdoor snooker table is kinda crafty. And when she is studiously ignored on a mystery-solving team task, Greg Davies has to conclude, “Have we ever had a clearer metaphor for the plight of women through the ages?”

But the first task is simple — answer that age-old question: how long is a piece of string?
