I'm always surprised that it wasn't more popular, it's absolutely brilliant and has aged very well.

It was interesting to hear him say that he thinks it's the best thing that they've done, considering the wealth of output they've got to choose from.

Rewatched Catterick recently, had forgotten how good it was! Bob plays a (relatively) straight role really well. Guy's a legend!

Probably my favourite sitcom.

I like the hotel receptionist's subtle different version of "your pulling my leg".

The Adam Buxton Podcast with Bob Mortimer from last year (maybe April time) is very good also.


That’s excellent was but totally different to what I was expecting!

As said by others, Athletico Mince is superb.

Bob is tremendous, so many characters and daft bits of pattern to list.  I'll never look at Peter Beardsley the same again.

I sensed some tension with Bob and Laverne. Apparently she is from Sunderland which would probably explain it. He is wired to the moon in a most hilarious way.

He and Lauren Lavern both have a Radio 4 voice, going by the sound of things.

I only listened to DID last week because it was Bob Mortimer.  Lauren Lavern has ruined the programme with matey north of England ways and shite accent.  Can't wait for Big Kirsty to get over her fibromyalgia and make Desert Island Discs great again.

Bob Mortimer is a fucking treasure and should be cherished. His appearances on Would I Lie To You are some of the funniest television ever made, and the Chris Rhea Egg in the Bath story may be the best 10/15 minutes of "comedy panel show" in television history. He just brings a childlike glee to everything he does, and seems to have a natural inquisitiveness so that even the most absurd sounds entirely plausible.

His twitter is consistently brilliant as well. His "Cat names for sale" tweets are maybe the highlight of the existence of social media.

Long may he and Vic Reeves continue to make comedy for our consumption.

I remember seeing the first ever episode of Vic Reeves Big Night out as it was broadcast.  I was in bed with really bad flu and the TV remote had fallen off the bed and I couldn't move to pick it up.  So I just lay there and watched it.

At the time I thought it was the worst television programme I'd ever seen but have since realised that was because it was so original, innovative and before it's time.

I watched the week after to see if it was as bad as the first one and then started to get it.  Always worth remembering that if you react that badly to something it might actually be really great.

My favourite ever comedy sketch is 'Tittybiscuits'.

Bobs an absolute legend imo
Here’s my favourite story on WILTY
 
As good as the Chris Rea egg story was, the dentistry tops the lot for me. I was literally on the floor laughing in that way when you almost can't breathe. I think it was "Fuji 9" that did me in.

Vic was on the cover of the NME that week.

I watched the first episode and loved every moment.

The fact it was true just made it so much funnier.

His Gangs Of The EPL on Athletico Mince was/is genius, actual flight of fancy genius. Phil Jones with the voice of Charlie Williams, Harry Kane as the top (non Muslim) scorer in the EPL, big Zlatan terrorising everyone....

I still have 'Smell Of Reeves And Mortimer' somewhere, with all the bits that seem to have disappeared - Mulligan & O'Hare's Moods, Dent and Potter, Licky Kicky, Quack Quack the homebrew duck etc
