This is a dramatically bonkers story, they are immensely warm hosts and their daftness highlights all the parts you would expect (the assassins visited a nightclub where the taps were shaped like penises: not to make a joke would be remiss). My job is not to reason why, etc, but just to tell you if British Scandal is any good. It is."
