This show seems like a deliberate throwback to the madcap sketch shows of the '60's, such as 'At Last The 1948 Show' and 'Marty'. Merton takes a situation, such as a father telling his daughter she's adopted, turned it inside out (he tells her she isn't actually adopted), and by piling absurdity on absurdity, creates an explosion of inspired comic lunacy. The sketches were linked by surreal monologues such as 'there's a time tunnel at the back of my fridge'; delivered of course from a railway station tobacconist's. My copies of these 2 seiries are from TV and NOT commercial releases (which I don't think exist).

In Europe


  In Europe - Series 1


    1 Berlin

The celebrity travelogue takes many forms, from the wheedling nosiness of Alan Whicker to the eager scoutmaster approach of Michael Palin. Paul Mertonís preferred method is to tumble blindly into unfamiliar situations and then deadpan his way to safety. Heís at it again with a new six-part series for Five, Paul Merton in Europe, following on from his expeditions to China and India.
