Impressionists embark on a six-part episodic road trip

Impressionists Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon (portraying thinly fictionalised versions of themselves) are back for a third instalment, road tripping, wining and dining at extravagant restaurants throughout Spain.

Coogan has self-satisfaction issues, hung up on ageing and his career downfall, despite his last film being nominated for an Oscar. His 50-year-old self is in a panic and desperately holding onto his youth, meanwhile dating a much younger (and very married) woman. Brydon appears to have it all worked out with his stable life, wife and children.

Despite the sense of underlying sadness, the relentless banter and impersonations keep us entertained. This time around we get brilliant impersonations of Roger Moore, Sean Connery, Mick Jagger, Michael Caine (and we can't forget the impersonation of Mick Jagger IMPERSONATING Michael Caine). All the while amongst this; a delicious serving of fine foods, close up shots of delectable seafood being seared and steamed on backdrops of tranquil towns and villages in Spain.

A lighthearted comedy, though a lesser version of the previous two in the trio with an odd ending!
