An Idiot Abroad
Thursday, 9.30pm, One
This hilarious show sees Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant up to their usual tricks: giving the dozy Karl Pilkington a hard time. While they’re back home in their easy chairs convulsed with laughter as they watch his exploits, Pilkington fluffs around exploring each of the seven wonders of the world. He’s no born traveller and it doesn’t help that Gervais and Merchant delight in setting traps. Here he heads to Mexico’s Chichen Itza, where the Aztecs made human sacrifices.
