After developing a serious crush on Natasia Demetriou in What We Do in the Shadows (TV), I “discovered” that for many years now she’s also been the comedy-partner of The Windsors‘s Ellie White! To be fair, I’m sure I watched some of their skits back when the “Royal Wedding Special” aired a year ago, but I was mostly focussing on White then, rather than her collaborator, so now I can watch them again with fresh eyes… and also enjoy a new 18-minute “pilot” that the BBC have posted on their iPlayer thingy, stuffed with surreal sketches and discomforting characters. Fun!
Meanwhile, this Wednesday sees/hears the return of White’s onscreen-sister Celeste Dring to our airwaves, in a new series of spoof Radio 4 “human interest” podcast The East Coast Listening Post, co-written and presented with her “Lazy Susan” comedy-partner Freya Parker. Also fun!
