Apparently, Terry Mynott is the one who knocks. Or at least, he can do a pretty good impression of the one who knocks as this exclusive clip from returning Channel 4 comedy, The Mimic, shows.


The comedian has added Walter White and Jesse Pinkman from the cult US drama Breaking Bad to his repertoire, the fruits of which can be seen in the opening episode of series two in which in which our hero Martin finds himself cooking (geddit?) his dinner in a pair of Walter-style tighty-whities.

Martin is of course the lonely but affable loser with a formidable talent for doing impressions played by Mynott. His flat-mate Jean, seen in the clip below, is played by Jo Hartley.

Martin ended the last series bottling out of a potential break for stardom. Series two sees him down on his luck once more and trying to forge a half-way decent relationship with his son.

Mynott's other specialist impressions in the series include David Attenborough and Morgan Freeman, but the comedian told that he wanted to do Breaking Bad’s Walt and Jesse to keep the range of impressions fresh and up-to-date.

He said: “Yeah, I went off on a mental summer of just walking around going, ‘I am the one who knocks’ ‘Yo, dude, bitches, yo’."


The Mimic returns tonight on Channel 4 at 10pm
