ROYAL TELEVISION SOCIETY 2006
The first lady of character comedy is back and so are they: stroppy teenager Lauren; 'foul-mouth' Nan Taylor (the scourge of Meals on Wheels); Paul and Sam in their endlessly hysterical world; and Bernie the nurse who brings a new meaning to having a 'bedside manner'!
With a host of hilarious new creations, including the modern gentleman bachelor, Derek Faye, and indignant Northerners Janice and Ray... we very dare you not to buy it!
Tate's characters are beyond comparison... an extraordinary ear for mimicry, a blissfully sure sense of character and perfect timing.

Fans of Tracey Ullman should take a look at The Catherine Tate Show, starring British redheaded comedienne Tate (also known from Doctor Who) as a rogue's gallery of awkward oddballs. Tate immerses herself so deeply in her personae that she's unrecognizable, and not just because of the startlingly realistic makeup that transforms her into, to cite just a few, a snooty upper-class woman with a flatulence problem; an eternally aggrieved elderly lady; or an obnoxious teen girl. Though the sketches are sometimes flimsily developed and Tate has a tendency to milk catchphrases (teenager Lauren's response "Am I bovvered?", delivered whenever she's confronted, is particularly popular), the fullness of her commitment remains impressive. The strongest sketches are often those limited to a single episode of The Catherine Tate Shows--for example, a woman who's become engaged to an Egyptian man over the Internet and keeps sending him money; Tate not only vanishes into her character as per usual, but there's an edge of sadness and empathy that gives this sketch an added dimension. Oddly, over the course of the season, the repetition of the characters starts to work in Tate's favor. While some of her bits wear out their welcome (the laughing couple grow tiresome within their very first sketch), most of these arrested, oblivious people grow on you. You start to see the world through their obsessive perspective; what initially felt flippant becomes strangely humane and oddly charming. --Bret FetzerSee all Editorial Reviews

Better than the first season. She is hilarious, if only the seasons were longer. She masters all her characters, although Lauren is arguably her best.Published on April 13, 2012 by Michael
