Comedienne Catherine Tate returns for six more episodes of character-based sketch comedy. New characters include a Northern Irish mum who's delighted that her son is gay and 1950s landlady Ma Willow. Meanwhile, Lauren gets hitched, the Aga Saga woman takes a wrong turn into Tottenham and Nan appears on Paul O'Grady's teatime show. Also includes the Comic Relief special, which sees Lauren meeting prime minister Tony Blair and 'Doctor Who' star David Tennant, and Nan appearing on 'Deal or No Deal'.
The Catherine Tate Show returns to DVD with its successful third series, and there are some increasingly familiar faces along for the journey too.
Very much in the spirit of the comedy sketch show of old--Harry Enfields Television Programme seems an obvious template--The Catherine Tate Show nonetheless carves its own niche, and thats thanks very much to the array of talents of its star. Catherine Tate can clearly both act and write, but more crucially for this endeavour, she cant half make you laugh.
Highlights of series three of The Catherine Tate Show include foul-mouthed Nans appearance on The Paul OGrady Show, the continued antics of Lauren (surely Britains scariest schoolgirl) and the appearance of the likes of Leslie Phillips (who, surely, is pretty much welcome anywhere), Jools Holland and Patsy Palmer. But whats also welcome is the number of smaller, lower profile characters who are also explored, usually to great comedic effect.
Its already been confirmed that this is to be the final full series of The Catherine Tate Show, and perhaps its right that it ends while its still on a high. Because series three is a real delight, frequently funny, eminently quotable and, ultimately, downright entertaining. --Jon Foster

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.
