I missed Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle last night, and was particularly keen to see it having read in the TV guides that the topic of the latest instalment was set to be "Religion". Imagine, therefore, my surprise (you could also say I was "shocked" and "stunned") when I went on BBC iPlayer this lunchtime and found that last night's episode was in fact entitled "Comedy". A late switch, on account of not wanting to offend Christians on Easter Monday? It certainly seems so – this TV review from the Times even says "Religion" was on last night, presumably because the reviewer actually watched a preview tape instead of the broadcast itself. There's only really one way to learn the answer to such questions – Wikipedia. And here it is - in the entry for Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle, under "Episode 5: Comedy", we have the following: "NOTE: This episode was intended as the last in the series of 6 but was transmitted as the 5th episode, moving the original 5th episode titled 'Religion' to the the last position. This change of order relates to the original date for broadcast of the 'Religion' episode falling on Easter Bank holiday Monday."
Wow, the BBC really has become over-sensitive since the Ross-Brand silliness.
