The Sitcom Trials: the final

Anyone following the blog will know that we've been slightly obsessed with the tale of linguistics lecturer Dean Hardman's rebirth as a comedy genius. His script for From Riga to Rotherham is now in the finals of The Sitcom Trials, a national competition to find new comedy scriptwriting talent. The finals take place tomorrow and Dean's work faces a pretty star-studded panel of judges:Lucy Lumsden (Head of Comedy for BBC TV), Andrew Newman (Head of Entertainment, Channel 4) and Jane Berthoud (Head of Comedy Commissioning, BBC Radio). We, of course, wish him the best of luck (but are now beginning to worry that he might eventually leave us to hang out in some glamorous clique of celebrity Mancunian comedians somewhere in Prestwich).
