Benji Wilson reviews the week in TV, including BBC Two's disappointing The Game. 8:00AM BST 02 May 2015. As a boy weaned on Bond. the Cold War and the heartening glow of mutually assured destruction, one of my favourite books was The KnowHow Book of Spycraft. It was practical to a degree that should probably have been illegal – it was used in evidence at Oleg Gordievsky’s High Court trial in 1993 to prove that much of the KGB’s tradecraft was already in the public domain. It taught you how to pass messages between you and “a contact” (I used it to transfer highly classified intel like “Dom stinks” to fellow classmates) and make dead letter drops that I believed a cartoon spy from the book called Black Hat, who actually had a black hat, would pick up later.

This is why so many new spy dramas are old ones – the Americans have The Americans. which features two KGB officers posing as locals living in Washington DC in the Eighties, and now we have The Game.
the BBC’s nicotine-stained wallow in Cold War spy nostalgia. The Game isn’t a catastrophe, but it suffers from coming after The Americans, which is first-rate, and from not being Le Carré. It is a sort of Tinker Tailor Soldier Why? Tom Hughes plays a conflicted spook in a drab trench coat, part of an MI5 team led by Brian Cox (the actor, not the Prof). The Russians are up to something big, no one trusts anyone and guess what, there could be a mole. Incredibly, at one point someone actually says, “It’s just a game,” something that I would bet my black hat no one in espionage has said ever (unless they were playing Monopoly at the time. Hughes’s Joe Lambe is supposed to be a shape-shifting, impenetrable presence.
He speaks in a two G&T drawl, too, which gives the impression he either has something to hide, or nothing to say. It wouldn’t be fair to cast Hughes off as not leading man material on the basis of one episode – evidently, Lambe is an enigma wrapped in a mystery wrapped in a series of screenwriter’s character development notes – but I found Joe Lambe about as charismatic as a duvet. Phil Spencer and Kirstie Allsopp (Photo: Channel 4/Fiona Murray). Kirstie and Phil’s Love It or List It is an import, a Canadian format to which Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer of Location, Location, Location fame have been clunkily retrofitted.
I watched it because I was suspicious of the title – does anyone actually say “list it” with regard to housing in Britain? Will the next new restaurant show on Channel 4 be called “You Get the Check!” – but more because I wanted to know what on God’s green housing ladder there could be left to say about property that hadn’t been said already. The format comes straight from the factual television handbook – create a false dilemma, in this case one that imagines that every homeowner in Britain is unable to sit still without either improving or selling their home. Given that we’re regularly told that moving house is the most stressful thing in life after divorce, bereavement and losing again at online Scrabble, I must say that I resent Kirstie and Phil trying once more to get me to part with my property. Would it be too much to ask if, just for a few years, I could actually live in the damn thing? K&P have spent 15 years putting ants in Britain’s pants, fomenting the belief that the only thing more dangerous than buying the wrong house is not buying or selling your house at all.
I noted that the option “Love your house” in the title actually translated in this week’s episode to “knock down half the walls and lobotomise your kitchen for 80 grand”. And then the couple flogged it anyway. Peter Kay and Sian Gibson (Photo: BBC). You’ll have noticed that Kirstie and Phil get my dander up: well, Peter Kay’s Car Share. a new comedy, restored my faith in television’s ability to be something more than just a cattle prod to sell stuff. Kay plays John, a supermarket worker who has been enrolled in his work’s car share scheme. It means that twice a day he has to spend 15 minutes or so, there and back, in the company of Kayleigh (Sian Gibson), a virtual stranger.
The whole thing takes place in the car, consisting of their chit-chat, the imbecilic radio ads and some wonderful/abhorrent Nineties music (depending on your view of Nineties music). All six episodes of Car Share went up on iPlayer simultaneously, yet this is one of those shows where a hearty binge might not be the best way to view it. It’s one of those comedies like Nurse or Getting On that are more impressionistic than appointment to view. They make no effort to stop you switching off. They’re just companionable and somewhere between gently tickling and really funny.

Of course, it also requires a script as tight as a gnat’s whoopsie, as well as sharp performances. Car Share, thus far, has both. Whether or not this can be sustained over a series we shall see. Episode one has already mined the car radio and its adverts for humour, as well as utilising a fantasy sequence to get us out of the capsule.
But in a week in which two television shows were clichéd or overwrought, Kay’s simple new comedy felt both current and bold.
