**BEC HILL: WORK-IN-PROGRESS**

**STUART GOLDSMITH: THIS IS ACTUALLY MY SIXTH RODEO**
Goldsmith swaggers back with all the confidence of a man who has not only helped produce a new baby, but has also managed to write a show that isn’t entirely about the daft little sod.
Well not entirely.
Expect all the usual shaggy-dogs, monkeyshines and frogging about, but this time delivered with a very slightly desperate “this has to work” sheen.
