Just in case you wanted to watch a comedy pilot with Ricky Gervais as a David Bowie impersonator

Golden Years - not to be confused with Stephen King's Golden Years - was one of Channel 4's 1999 Comedy Lab pilots. Written by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, it sees a pre-The Office Gervais as a video store owner obsessed with David Bowie and appearing on Stars in Their Eyes. It's quite David Brent-like and if you have 20-odd minutes to spare, you can watch it below.

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.
