Enjoy The Trip

The concept: a week driving round the North of England with a mate, eating good food and staying in nice places, in six 30-minute episodes

The scenery: the ‘North’ section of visitengland should just say ‘watch this’ and link to BBC iPlayer. (Bolton Abbey, above)

The food: when was the last time you had a three-course lunch? With a good walk on your doorstep, and a comfy bed upstairs? Bliss.

The story arc: Rob Brydon’s impressions going from funny to annoying; Steve Coogan starting and finishing in his empty, London flat; Coogan as parent/Coogan as child.

The detail: ‘gonna write a classic’, mobile reception, the morning’s map directions, Michael Caine’s changing accent, foam, reaching for the bill, awkward hug.

Loved it. Nice work, Beeb.
