The 25th anniversary of BBC2’s The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer is the reason for this new four-part outing for Vic and Bob – Vic & Bob’s Big Night Out – but any excuse to let loose their unique brand of comic mayhem on the viewing public is always welcome.
Long-term fans will be pleased to hear that talent competition Novelty Island is back, this week featuring the obnoxious Graham Lister performing with his rescue owl, Beaky.
Plus, the pair disrupt a couple’s cosy dinner date with a song and dance routine, before they are interrupted by ‘Tom Cruise’ performing a daring stunt, and Bill Decker demos unique animal impersonations. There really is nothing quite like a big night in with the inimitable Vic and Bob. Remember the first series in 1990?
