Episode Info

Meet Waldo. A CGI blue bear from a children's educational TV show who in reality is an anarchic character on a satirical late-night topical comedy show. Behind the scenes, Waldo is voiced and controlled by failed comedian Jamie Salter. When the channel decides they would like to give Waldo his own pilot, the production company enter him into a political race against one of his victims, Conservative Liam Monroe, for a stunt. Jamie isn't comfortable with politics - he just sees himself as a clown - but once the wheels start turning there's no stopping the thing. So what can Jamie do?

Critic reviews for The Waldo Moment

"The Waldo Moment" has had an interesting life cycle due to its newly found relevance, but as an episode it is not very memorable. [Full Review in Spanish]

Watching the blue bear rip into a thinly-veiled caricature of Jeremy Paxman on the show's Newsnight equivalent was the sort of perfectly-pitched comedy moment that will hopefully guarantee another series of this... always thought-provoking, drama.
