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.
