What you just saw was a pilot for a show called Full Force directed by Armando Iannucci, portions of the cast were scrapped and it was evolved into BBC’s Hyperdrive. While a few of the cast members are the same, such as Miranda Hart as Teal, One will immediately notice that It stars Sanjeev Bhaskar as Henderson and Mark Gatiss as York. I actually like this clip for some reason, it’s like the dialog is more “raw”, and more believable. Being a big fan of his work with Steve Coogan, I would have enjoyed Iannucci as the main director.
Stay tuned this week for a run-through of series two of Hyperdrive, and perhaps a bit of coverage of a comic convention I will be attending!
