Product description

The first three series of That Mitchell and Webb Sound gained an army of fans, huge critical acclaim (Series Two won a Sony Silver Award) and led to a massively successful BAFTA-winning television series, That Mitchell and Webb Look. In this fourth fantastic series, the duo once again return to their radio roots. Meet an orthopedic company with its very own trans-galactic portal ('the stargate is not a bin'), discover how Saturday night TV shows are invented (such as My Big Fat Greek Big Breakfast) and marvel at a mysterious new arrival at the Institute of Extraordinary Creatures. Plus the last of the Easter Islanders have a lovely surprise for their god. There's also a police officer determined to catch a real menace to society (i.e. Top Cat), and an exciting new reality show uses soap stars, cutting-edge surgery and some horses in Make Me a Celebrity Centaur. Plus we take a look at the new twelve blade razor, Doctor Doolittle regrets striking up a conversation with a goldfish, Superman outstays his welcome in the office and two comedians face the old lady job justification hearings...As heard on BBC Radio 4, this complete fourth radio series also features Olivia Colman, James Bachman and Sarah Hadland. 'What a delight, having That Mitchell and Webb Sound back on the radio' - Guardian. 3 CDs. 2 hrs 49 mins.

Author information

David Mitchell has been writing and performing comedy since his schooldays, when he and his friends would pen pages of sketches, though never put on a show. He studied History at Peterhouse, Cambridge; joined Footlights and soon became President of the society. It was there that he met Robert Webb. After graduation, Mitchell and Webb staged a number of two-man shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before becoming freelance writers, contributing to comedy shows such as The Armstrong and Miller Show and Big Train. They acquired a growing following after writing and starring in Bruiser and That Mitchell and Webb Situation, and in 2003 they got their own BBC Radio 4 series, That Mitchell and Webb Sound. The second series was broadcast in 2005, and the show transferred to television as That Mitchell and Webb Look the following year. The duo also starred in the award-winning Channel 4 series Peep Show and the acclaimed BBC Two comedy Ambassadors, as well as appearing in The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff. In 2007, they starred in the film Magicians, and in 2009 they published This Mitchell and Webb Book. David's solo projects include guesting on panel games such as Have I Got News for You, Mock the Week and QI; co-presenting 10 O'Clock Live and writing an autobiography, Back Story (2012), and a collection of journalism, Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse (2014). Robert Webb grew up in Lincolnshire and studied English at Robinson College, Cambridge. He met David Mitchell when they both became members of Footlights, and from then on they collaborated in a number of comedy shows. Their first appearance as a duo was on Comedy Nation. They then wrote and appeared in their own show, That Mitchell and Webb Situation for satellite channel Play UK, before starring in two series of That Mitchell and Webb Sound on BBC Radio 4, four series of the BAFTA-winning That Mitchell and Webb Look on BBC Two, and nine series of the Golden Rose award-winner Peep Show. Robert's individual projects include starring in the 2006 film Confetti; winning Let's Dance for Comic Relief in 2009; playing Dan in the Channel 4 series Fresh Meat and acting as team captain on the BBC panel show Argumental.
