Andrew Chaplin’s BBC Three series Witless just got a hell of a write-up on VODzilla.co, receiving an 8 out of 10 review for Season 2 (currently viewable online with BBC’s iPlayer). Reviewer Ivan Radford calls Season 2 “laugh-out-loud hilarious” and even goes so far as to compliment Mr. Chaplin himself, saying it’s, “… made even more so by director Andrew Chaplin, who never misses a chance to blend cinematic style with the most mundane actions.” He doles out even more compliments which you can read at the review right HERE, but we must warn you, there are Season 1 spoilers in the review so if you haven’t watched Season 1 yet, first off, what is wrong with you? Second off, go to iPlayer and check it out. It’s rare that such a well reviewed show has a Season 2 that’s even better than Season 1, so you must check it out. We insist.
Series Two of Andrew Chaplin’s show Witless hits BBC’s iPlayer at the end of the month. January 25th iPlayer will drop all five episodes so now is the time to rewatch all of season one! And if you’ve never seen the show before, the quick pitch is: Leanne (Kerry Howard, Him & Her, and forthcoming Young Hyacinth) and Rhona (Zoe Boyle, Downton Abbey, Sons Of Anarchy), are two ordinary flatmates whose lives are thrown into disarray after being forced into witness protection.
Who doesn’t wanna watch that? Need an endorsement? Digital Spy called the show a “brilliant online comedy.”
Trust us. You’re gonna wanna check it out on the 25th.

Big week for our dear director Mr. Andrew Chaplin. First, his newest short, “1500 Words,” has a hell of a showing at the New York Independent Film Festival. “1500 Words” is the dark and comedic tale of one man’s struggle to keep his relationship, and himself alive whilst using his final one thousand five hundred words. Boy, who hasn’t been in that dilly of a pickle?
Then on Wednesday, October 21st Andrew teamed back up with Keith Lemon to deliver a ninety minute long tribute to one of the most classic eighties franchises of all time. No, not Breakin’ and Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo. We’re talking about Back to the Future! Fresh off the global celebration of the date to which Marty McFly travels in the 1989 sequel, Chaplin and Lemon delivered a star studded world class tribute to the films that would even make Biff Tannen weep with emotion. So if you’re living in the UK check out the show on ITV.com and if you’re living in the US, well… Just sit there and think about how cool a ninety minute long tribute would be. So cool…
