For a major corporate move that is supposed to take place before the end of this year, the transfer of 2,500 BBC staff from London to the new media centre at Salford Quays seems to be causing as many problems as it was designed to solve.

It was always going to be a tough midweek fixture for Clarke Carlisle, the first active professional footballer to appear on Question Time (BBC1, Thursday). He may have been playing on home turf in Burnley but the gaffer had been tinkering with the formation of the NHS front line and the opposition were deploying very defensive tactics at the Chilcot Inquiry; then shortly before kick-off, one of the star players had to stand down after lurid allegations about his private life were revealed.

"The great thing about playing this festival is that there's music to fill any awkward silences," says Shappi Khorsandi of the jazz pleasantly leaking from an adjacent tented venue.

The last time I saw Shappi Khorsandi was in the studio of Soho Theatre, but her accession to playing the main theatre space is one of the smaller boons to her career in recent years. The Anglo-Iranian comic has enjoyed coverage on TV shows ranging from Friday Night with Jonathan Ross to Question Time and seen her book A Beginner's Guide to Acting English win her new fans away from the comedy scene. Her act itself, however, makes a sporadic case for its own betterment.
