4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the three, 15 Nov. 2007

This review is from: The Catherine Tate Show : Complete BBC Series 3 [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
I think this series of the Catherine Tate Show was the strongest of her three. Many people I have spoken to did not find her first series very funny and I can understand that as I had to watch it a number of times to really *get* it.

By series three she is on form though and has filtered out the weaker characters. I think where Catherine Tate wins in comparison to Little Britain is that she is better at keeping her regular characters fresh. The asbo teen Lauren, the foul mouthed granny, Bernie the nurse and the in denial Derek all return here in fresh, hilarious scenarios. Of the new sketches Geordie Georgie is especially welcome with her persistant and random fundraising antics.

As a DVD this is slightly disapointing. There are only six episodes to this series and the only extra is selected commentary on select scenes. This would have been much better value if there were some more features such as 'Behind The Scenes' or they could have included one of Catherine Tates many interviews (Richard & Judy/Paul O Grady) like they often do with the Little Britain sets. Additionally, if you were expecting to have the Comic Relief specials included they are not on here.

If you enjoyed Series 2 you'll love this new series. If you're new to Catherine Tate give this a go if your sense of humour is along the lines of Little Britain.
