Also she wears this amazing swim cap.
II. Speaking of Catherine Tate, apparently on Boxing Day there'll be a two-hour documentary airing called Catherine Tate: Laughing at the 00s, about (British I assume) comedy in the last decade:
Sketch-show sensation Catherine tells the story of the decade in which she became a household name. She meets with comedy glitterati Alan Carr, David Walliams, Noel Fielding, Rob Brydon and her Doctor Who co-star, David Tennant, all of whom reflect on the greatest comedy moments in recent history.
As well as showcasing all the most entertaining, memorable comedy of the time, the documentary also features newsreel and pop culture archive that contextualises the gags. It reveals not just what was funny, but why it was funny.
I don't have much to do with British comedy BUT WHO CARES, Catherine Tate is hosting a thing and interviewing David Tennant for it, so I am already prepping some popcorn.
III. I'd heard a while ago that supposedly that Love Life program was Curb Your Enthusiasm-style scriptless improv, but I wasn't sure how true that was until I saw this interview with Kaya Scodelario floating around Tumblr. Honestly?
Most interesting thing about this project TBH, I am now genuinely intrigued for reasons beyond casting. I mean, that definitely has the potential to be terrible on every level, but it'll be a NEW and EXCITING kind of terrible. On the downside, apparently Billie Piper's character doesn't actually make out with Kaya Scodelario's character which seems like a wasted opportunity.
