Shooting Stars

Sure, some mean-spirited people criticised Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer’s return to comedy in 2009 for using the same old gags as in every other series of Shooting Stars, but that’s exactly what made it great. All the leg-rubbing, dove-cooing, club-style singing and Ulrika-ka-ka-ka-ing does is give the duo a solid base from which their surrealism can riff off. And getting the now-very-famous-indeed Matt Lucas involved again as George Dawes was a coup of the levels of getting Beyonce to sing with Destiny’s Child again.
