IT’S A DATE

HAROLD Bishop hooks up with Ross Noble us­ing ca­sual sex app Grindr. That’s the es­sen­tial premise, along with the fact Bishop ( ac­tu­ally Ian Smith play­ing a very sim­i­lar char­ac­ter) has made out he looks like An­to­nio Ban­deras on his pro­file to score some in­ter­est. But there’s much comic mileage out of the in­con­gruity of it all and their short tale is quite en­ter­tain­ing. In the sec­ond story, Peter Row­sthorn’s at­tempts to woo his much younger girl­friend with Du­ran Du­ran tick­ets goes awry for much more dra­matic and emo­tional rea­sons than you might sus­pect.
