mm, where do you stand on 'The Cycling Tour' from Series 3? it's years since i saw it but i thought it worked pretty great; one long 30 minute sketch as it were. i think they put it into the 'failed experiment' box, or some of them did anyway as they never did that again.

i think that was the first departure in that direction, yeah (tho 'ethel the frog' with spiny norman and the krays substitutes was probably close to it too). i didn't like that one iirc but i could revisit.
i think it maybe turned out a lot like one of palin's whatchoocallem tales?

only caught the ripping yarns last year, varying quality but not bad at all

Cycling Tour is one of my favorite episodes.
