Episode 7: You've Got No Chutzpah

Summary

Charlotte Ritchie, Jamali Maddix, Lee Mack, Mike Wozniak and Sarah Kendall continue their quest to curry favour with omnipotent Taskmaster Greg Davies. Lee attacks a toy vole and Sarah invents a sweet dressing for an unusual salad. Meanwhile, Charlotte provides surprising sound effects for a set of Russian dolls. Greg's assistant Alex Horne takes notes, records times and offers the contestants some much-needed moral support.

Review

After the horrors of last week, this is a lovely edition full of ingeniously potty challenges. How often have we heard Alex Horne answer queries with a stern, “All the information is on the task”? Except this time, the instructions are going up in flames even as the contestants try to read (and, desperately, remember) them. Was it kick the dog or bath the dog? And how do you undermine a vole? Mike Wozniak has a way…

There are some impressive creations, too, in the babushka meals they must concoct, where each course has to be contained inside the previous one. All this plus the splendid sight of Charlotte Ritchie trying to empty a bucket of spoons into her boot.
