The New Statesman outdoes himself

London Live’s TV editor Toby Earle gives his recommendations for what to watch this weekend.
In the New Statesman, Toby Earle says Alan B’Stard outdoes himself as a “sewer of toxic personality traits.” This week sees Alan try his hand at banking – or rather, at swindling customers at a bank he sets up. Rik Mayall was rarely on finer form.
Toby also discusses the Man In The High Castle, an Amazon pilot that Toby encourages everyone to vote for to ensure it gets made into a full series. An adaption of Philip K. Dick’s harrowing novel that presents an alternate history of the world – a world where the Nazi’s triumphed in the Second World War. Unsurprisingly, Toby describes the pilot as “really frightening” but praises it for looking “fantastic” and for the “really special” detailing.
He also talks about Drop the Dead Donkey and Murder in the First.
