Episode 8: An Orderly Species

Summary

Greg Davies sets tasks to Sarah Kendall, Charlotte Ritchie, Jamali Maddix, Lee Mack and Mike Wozniak. Sarah still leads the race to win Greg's stupendous skull-trophy, but the chasing pack are closing in, hoping beyond hope to score points by creatively munching on snacks, drawing pretty wings and being brutally honest about emergency plane landings. As usual, Alex Horne offers the intrepid contenders moral support.

Review

We’ve reached the stage of a Taskmaster series where I don’t want it to end. And I never want to see any other line-up of guests because this one is just right. The chemistry is percolating nicely and the banter between Greg Davies and his victims a joy to watch. 

The way he teases Charlotte Ritchie for her default children’s-TV-presenter demeanour or Mike Wozniak for… being Mike Wozniak is lovely, and everyone involved looks like they’re having a ball. 

At least, when they’re not being humiliated. One task, a beauty involving a balloon, three poppadoms and a metronome, reduces Lee Mack to spluttering out crumbs of poppadom and crying in despair, “I’ve got a Bafta, me!”
