The Trip of Spain
"The Trip to Spain" ep.1 Rob Brydon & Steve Coogan (C) BskyB (C) Baby Cow Productions

The Trip has been one of the most critically praised comedies of recent years. However, there is at least one thing about the new series that will mean that fewer people will watch it as it goes out: it’s now on Sky Atlantic.

As before, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are taking part in another road trip, this time going coast-to-coast across Spain, where they are sampling the food in some of the country’s best restaurants as well coming up with some of their best impressions.

It will be interesting to see how many fans will be willing to make the switch from BBC to Sky, but I can’t help but feel the need to ask one question: why has Coogan moved the show to a channel which belongs by the same company that owns the newspaper that hacked his phone?

The Trip to Spain is on Sky Atlantic at 22.00.
