  • This is the best episode I have seen so far, mainly because of the scenes with David Walliams.

    The best part of this episode were the scenes with the Doomsday wackos led by Adrian Tintagel(David Walliams). The script was creative and the characters funny and a blast. David is very talented, not only on Little Britain but guest appearances like this one. The only thing that spoiled it was the intrusion of Anna(Emma Pierson) who I find quite annoying due to either the part written for her or her acting skills or both.

    The scenes about Mr. Dovic, suspected of Croatian war crimes, were less interesting because of Tanya's melodrama and being a repeat of the same theme from other programs where it was done better, such as on Prime Suspect. Oliver Cotton, though, played the Dovic part convincingly. The storyline about the obnoxious footballers was my least favourite, mainly because of the un-professional reaction of hotel management and staff. I still worry for hotel investors. Gina Bellman was good as Marina, the obnoxious head of European operations and Richard Hawley played his coach role well.
  • A little similar to the first episode of this season but still good!

    I must admit, when this episode started and they began talking about guests needing privacy and high profile people misbehaving, I actually thought it was the first episode again. Of course, it wasnt, and the episodes are quite different, just the beginings are very similar.

    I liked this episode, the footballers were very similar to how real footballers behave, they're always making trouble and it's not surprising, really, as Tony says, these guys go from having nothing to being superstars for playing a game that they love, it must be hard for them.

    David Walliams guest stars as the creepy cult leader, a part I'm fairly sure he was born to play or at least a part that was written with him in mind. He can be a very odd man, sometimes.. I was not overly happy with the way the did the hypnosis thing, when he just clicked his fingers and people fell asleep. That's not really how it happens, seemed a bit far fetched to me. Anna's relentless curisoty was awesome (and very hot), i love her character!!

    I gave this episode 9/10 because, when all said and done, it was a little samey, but it was still a fantastic episode so i gave it a 9. That's just my two cents :D
