The Radio Show series (1984) pitted Kit and his pals against his new boss and was very funny and inventive. This second series sees Kit and his colleagues having been sacked by Radio Newtown and coming up with scheme after scheme to try to hit the big time in Brentford. It occasionally raises a smile but usually misses the mark. The characters seem to work better when there's someone in authority to work around. Lindsey Duncan is sadly underused as the successful 80s business woman. It felt to me like a watered down Filthy Rich and Catflap crossed with Only Fools and Horses.
Writers Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin would also work on the marvellous Shelley for Thames (often working alone) and the highly successful Drop the Dead Donkey (working together).
