Toast of Tinseltown

Tuesday, 10pm, BBC Two

In the fourth season of this comedy series, jobbing actor and voice-over artist Steven Toast (Matt Berry) jumps from Channel 4 to a new home at the BBC. Toast, an egomaniac in his middle years, has also got the chance of a lifetime, the offer of a job in a Hollywood movie. The third series was aired back in December 2015, making this season something of a resurrection for the irascible and explosive character played by Berry – who also played a not dissimilar character, Douglas Reynholm, the womanising bombastic boss in Graham Linehan’s The IT Crowd.
