Well, you might as well be gay. I mean, one of us ought to be gay.
I used to have a go -- remember when I had that earring? Well, must be attractiveness then. In the final series, we saw prototypes of the Mitchell and Webb action figures being delivered.
Mitchell also became king of the panel show, appearing as a guest or team captain on some and presenter on others. Rob Brydon teased him about his range as an actor, implying he only played versions of himself.
In a piece on Webb, critic Alexis Petridis wrote: I don't know why I thought Webb might be hard work, but I did. Perhaps it was down to his TV persona. On the one hand, a few years ago he made a fantastic documentary about his love of TS Eliot On the other, he presents and narrates an awful lot of clip shows -- 10 Things I Hate About, Great Movie Mistakes, Pop's Greatest Dance Crazes -- ostensibly as himself, but in fact as a character based vaguely on the one he's spent 10 years playing in Peep Show: Apparently, I'm not the only person to make this mistake.
InWebb was part of the ensemble cast of Confetti, in which he and Olivia Colman played a naturist couple. What it meant was that he had his cock out for most of his first major film role, which is just the kind of mess Jeremy would have gotten himself into. In fact, he was greatly troubled by the comments which appeared under his column in Daily Telegraph and after complaining elsewhere, he ended up getting fired.
Eventually, both Webb and Mitchell began to step a bit away from the brand. InMitchell published his memoir, David Mitchell: Back Story, which came out shortly after his engagement to fellow writer and presenter Victoria Coren was announced.
Sure, there were a few clunkers this week, but the hit rate was back on-track for the most part.

That Mitchell and Webb Look: Series 1 - Rotten Tomatoes
Raleigh discovering Virginia is it appropriate to name a place after the sexual status of your monarch? Not hilarious individuallybut a really nice ongoing idea to tie the episode together. I'm Sorry Your Dad's Dead: A man delivers inappropriate greetings cards to a newly-wed couple to cover their entire future life's possibilitiesbefore revealing he has terminal cancer.
Quite a strange idea that didn't really work, for shock-value or comic value. The Mrs Patricia Wilberforce Programme: What would a Jerry Springer-style daytime chat show look like if it were made in the s? In series one, it's noted that the number '2' is deadly to humans. Numberwang, the maths quiz that simply everyone! Parodied when it is revealed that Numberwang is decided through complicated mathematics by Colosson.
In the live show, Julie somehow managed to achieve Numberwang while bantering with the host. Monsieur Vauron, who shows up in a few sketches, is clearly David Suchet 's version of Poirot with just enough details filed off to prevent Agatha Christie 's estate from showing up with lawyers.
The company in the Our Slogan Is Terrible sketch. Not "death camp" evil, not "serial killer" evil, but I take a perverse pleasure in having been paid through the nose for nothing of any value!
By the halfway point of series 4, the cast and crew of the Quiz Broadcast have taken to worshipping the regulations, Sheila especially. Blessed be the regulations! Also "Oh, and that's a bad miss" for Ted during the snooker radio commentator sketches. Worth noting that their most notable catch phrases are usually set right at the start of the sketch, rather than having them as the 'pay-off' at the end. This is due to the show's origins on radio, where a catchphrase at the beginning would let the audience know which characters they were listening to right away.
Sorry, what happened to the [much nicer previous occupant of the position in question]? The [incredibly hostile and inappropriate] people who still unaccountably [do X].
Episode 5 of Series 4 has a series of "behind the scenes" sketches about the pair trying to create a serious thought-provoking ending akin to the ending of Blackadder Goes Forth. Like we care about MS However, Episode 6, the series finale, then ends in a desperately sad depiction of Sherlock Holmes with dementia, showing the inevitability of losing one's former glory in old age. This time, it's not played for laughs.
The justification for keeping aliens a secret in the Roswell Conspiracy sketch. One sketch shown on the BBC website has Mark Evans briefly tearing up as he mentions that despite being an award-winning writer, he ends up playing such roles as "Man With Leaflet".

Vauron is frustrated after seven days of investigating to find he has no evidence, only realising who the culprit was when they did "the Evil Voice". It has been a Hell of a week, to be honest with you!
Subverted when the Enigmatic Empowering Entity comes to claim the clarinet back for misuse, as the owner just uses the clarinet to embarrass him into running away in floods of tears. Played straight again when he meets the guy with the Red Tuba. Comically Missing the Point: An archaeologist discussing what appears to be Romans drinking beer from cans and wearing swimming trunks objects only on the basis of the length of a centurion's scabbard, and once she's told there's evidence that supports it being that length, her reservations vanish.
This despite seeing all this on a video tape. While discussing how to make a Blackadder Goes Forth-style Downer Endingthe duo discover the tea urn is empty and a new one will take five minutes.
