BBC 2 / Thursday October 11 @ 9.00pm

A new Jennifer Saunders comedy is always something to look forward to, the second episode of her new series about a daytime talk show host contains much hilarity. As always with Saunders too it is the dark underbelly she casually exposes that moves her work into another realm almost. The casting too is once again spot on, with roles for the fabulous Miranda Richardson and the under rated Brian Conley.

In the second episode Vivienne is inspired by rival Chris Connor's seamless interaction with his audience and attempts the same with her own spectators, much to the chagrin of producer Helena. The hunch is right as Vivienne is met with a wall of silence. After a disastrous promo meeting, Vivienne fires her
marketeers and calls in the aid of her much-trusted PR, the transgender Miriam, to implement tactics. Her first port of call under Miriam's direction is to visit and "touch" her real fans, as she makes a guest appearance at the local Macro ? to the great distress of her ever-loyal husband, Jared.
