The Gravy Train

Opening The Radio Times Guide To TV Comedy on a random page, we come across a Channel 4 show called The Gravy Train. Written by Malcolm Bradbury, and starring Ian Richardson alongside a rather young Christoph Waltz, it was directed by David Tucker, and aired in the summer of 1990.

It was a satire about what was then the EEC, and was followed up by a sequel called The Gravy Train Goes East.

I’ma amazed I’ve never seen this, so it’s pleasing to find it on All 4.
