Is anyone watching this? It’s on at a funny time of night and hasn’t been heavily promoted, but if you loved them bickering in Good Omens you’ll probably love this. Like The Trip except they don’t go anywhere.

It’s all on iPlayer (six fifteen-minute episodes).

Watched the first one - just managed to catch it on the off chance. It was hilarious!

And I noticed DT has a Tardis in his garden!

I didn't notice the Tardis! Will have to watch again

Ibeingbornawomananddistressed Thu 11-Jun-20 15:08:01

Binged them all in wee small hours and absolutely loved them!

DuckyMcDuck Thu 11-Jun-20 15:35:07

Just finished watching the lot (I only intended to watch the first) absolutely brilliant, I genuinely laughed out loud!

We just watched 2 Michael Sheens is hilarious I luvs him. The Tardis is in the garden I think we are going to binge later.

Just rewatched the first episode again to spot the Tardis!

It's very funny and excellent production values. It shows what can be done in the current circumstances.

Loving it. tardis

We binged it today. It was mostly hilarious - particularly the guest actors. It could have just been them with Michael and David ranting at each other for 6 episodes too grin I don't think it needed the ill neighbour or the friend in labour subplots.

We binged it last night. So so funny. Loved it and have been recommending it all day.

Loving it so far. Have a massive crush on Michael Sheen.

What is it called?

Thurlow Thu 11-Jun-20 22:18:34

The guest star in the last episode - "Just fucking do it!" grin

TheEmpressMatilda Thu 11-Jun-20 22:19:04

I’m watching it. Unfortunately other half produced a film with Tennant was in once and his missus was such a nightmare diva to everyone, they are both now banned in this household. I have to watch in secret!

PareidoliaNephophile Thu 11-Jun-20 22:55:59

It's called Staged @Flamingo, and all episodes are on iplayer. Very reminiscent of The Trip and I am bingewatching the lot as it has made me laugh so much. Bloody well done to all involved, it's joyous.

Yes, very funny, I laughed out loud.

Say down to watch one episode quickly and ended up watching the whole lot! Brilliant. The last guest star is brilliant.
I replayed the first episode but still can’t see a tardis in his garden. Think I need Specsavers.

ineedaholidaynow Fri 12-Jun-20 08:35:26

@lazymum99 the tardis is in the top right hand corner of the screen when DT gets off his sunbed.

lazymum99 Fri 12-Jun-20 08:37:11

Thanks! I will look again

CaptainMyCaptain Fri 12-Jun-20 08:43:24

We watched the whole lot last night. Excellent. In (I think) the second to last one they even billed David Tennant in the credits the way they agreed when they were arguing about it. Hard to explain without a spoiler,

AintNobodyHereButUsKittens Fri 12-Jun-20 09:02:46

The credits of each episode are possibly my favourite bit.

I also love the lockdown hair. I know David Tennant had extensions for a role he was supposed to be playing but Michael Sheen's mop was quite impressive. And it proves how high maintenance the last guest's usual style is. I'd have to go to the hairdresser every week if I had that cut.

It’s BRILLIANT! I haven’t LOLed that much for ages!

Georgia and Anna are also great in it 😂

Hilarious 😂😂😂
