I think Simon Day is something of a genius. He always seemed a more awkward performer than Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson on The Fast Show, but characters like Dave Angel still managed to stand out. He appears more relaxed and confident these days, and he’s doing amazing things on Bellamy’s People at the moment. The Peter Salad character in particular is brilliantly observed and tragically hilarious.

This is a web-only BBC thingummy from last year, and it’s great. It’s one of a series, and they’re all worth watching.

Any similarity to Peter Gabriel is no doubt entirely coincidental.

And don’t it make you want to get a camera and make yer own little films?
