Five series into Britain's most brilliant sitcom, and 'Peep Show's writers, Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, are still finding fresh ways to heap humiliation and disgrace on to their flatsharing anti-heroes, Mark (David Mitchell) and Jez (Robert Webb). The show's gimmick is that it's

all shot from the characters' points of view, while their darkest thoughts are revealed in voice-over, but Armstrong and Bain never rely on this device: each and every episode in the fifth series is packed with a film's worth of plot.
