For all the misses in this archetypal "hit-and-miss" sketch show, it's always juicily uncompromising: nothing's too weird for Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse if they find it funny, and nothing's too cruel for them if they want to put the boot in.

And some of the sketches – the café infatuation, the "I Saw You Coming" shop, the patrician surgeons – reflect the times we live in as accurately as anything they've ever done.
