COM­EDY TOAST OF LON­DON

1 0. 3 0PM, S BS2

Matt Berry ( TheMightyBoosh, TheITCrowd) stars as the pompous, ec­cen­tric Steven Toast – re­port­edly the “sec­ond-best high-wind ac­tor in Eng­land”. It’s not the same league as those two clas­sic come­dies, but worth a look, if only to see a man spit-roast­ing a fox and to hear Berry singing one of his strangely earnest songs.

MINIS­ERIES

DEAD­LINE GAL­LIPOLI 8. 3 0PM, S HOWCASE With big­ger stars, a shorter run­ning time and a faster nar­ra­tive – about journos try­ing to get the truth home about Gal­lipoli – this is an eas­ier sell and more en­ter­tain­ing than Nine’s overly familiar minis­eries. Hugh Dancy gets the lion’s share of good scenes as rule-break­ing Brit El­lis Ash­mead­Bartlett but new­comer Joel Jack­son also im­presses as Aussie journo Charles Bean.

COM­EDY

CRIS­TELA 7. 3 0PM, FOX8 De­spite an ag­gres­sive laugh track and an overly familiar feel, there are at least a few de­cent gags in ev­ery episode of Cris­tela. Sis­ter Daniela starts nag­ging Cris­tela to get healthy but it turns out she just wants her to slim down: “How you go­ing to find a man, look­ing like that?” she asks her. “I just think it’s im­por­tant to look fem­i­nine.” Ouch.
