TV Review: Ellie And Natasia, BBC Three (Is Now On TV)

It's not often that I watch a sketch show boxed set on iPlayer and immediately want to continue to the second episode, but it happened just now with Ellie and Natasia. Admittedly the episodes are a pocket-sized 15 minutes each, but the hit rate is phenomenally high. If you don't laugh at least six times during the opening show please get someone to check your pulse in case you have snuffed it.


Interview: Ellie White On New Sitcom Semi-Detached

Ellie White co-stars in a new sitcom Semi-Detached, written by David Crow and Oliver Maltman. Each episode plays out in real time and is exactly like 24, except instead of following a government agent as he saves the planet, the series follows a perennial loser called Stuart (Lee Mack) as his life goes down the pan in a suburban cul-de-sac.


Interview: Ellie White On New Sitcom The Other One

The Other One is a comedy about what happens when you discover your dead dad has a secret family and you now have a brand new sister.

It stars Siobhan Finneran (Downton Abbey, Happy Valley), Rebecca Front (The Thick of It, War and Peace), Ellie White (Inside No 9, The Windsors), Lauren Socha (Misfits, Catastrophe) and Amit Shah (Hospital People, Stag, W1A). Read an interview with Ellie White below.


TV: The Other One, BBC One

Whether by luck or judgement the BBC is on a roll at the moment with sitcoms featuring strong female casts. Sophie Willan's recent distinctive pilot Alma's Not Normal is going to become a series, but first this pilot, which went out back in 2017 (oh, happy days) on BBC Two gets a full run on BBC One.


Review: Ellie & Natasia, BBC Three/BBC One

It's a really funny sketch show but it doesn't feel very original. Is it OK to say that?

Ellie White and Nastasia Demetriou are both brilliant comedians and rising stars. White – the one that looks a bit like Bob Geldof – has cropped up in programmes including The Windsors, Damned and House of Fools and Demetriou can currently be seen in What We Do In The Shadows and was also in Stath Lets Flats (with brother Jamie, who also pitches up breifly here as a dodgy East European).

Review: Sky Summer Shorts – Vicki Pepperdine & Ellie White's Summer, Sky Arts

The English countryside is a rich source of comedy. Just look at the recent success of BBC3's This Country or Julia Davis' Camping. And this short by comedy regulars Pepperdine and White mines a similar vein of unspoken weirdness always just under the surface.

Video: New Edition of 2016 Year Friends Just Released

“Did anyone else not follow a lot of that?” is the key line in the tenth edition of online series 2016 Year Friends, which has just been released. This episode, October, is a not-so-straight horror. Characters come back to life, knives and guns are waved about, there is some screaming and dialogue seems to be go round in a circle. And there is also an obligatory scene in a dark forest.
