The revived game show now hosted by Richard Ayoade concludes tonight, and it feels like bringing it back has been worth it.

Admittedly, there are some things I am not that keen on: namely the fact there are four ad breaks instead of three, which means that the show itself has less airtime (two or three games per zone as opposed to three or four in the original). However, Ayoade has been a wonderful host and the main reason for the success of the new version in my opinion.

For the final episode, he is guiding a team who first meat in a Welsh pizza restaurant.

The Crystal Maze is on Channel 4 at 20.00.
