WATSON & OLIVER BBC2, 10pm Lorna Watson and Ingrid Oliver claim that seeing the first series of their sketch show on TV was like 'waiting for exam results.' They're also keen to point out that they don't mind that not everybody felt that all the gags worked, because this time, they feel they've learned from their mistakes. And, if last week's edition is anything to go by, the second run is far better than the first with a lot more laughs per episode. The duo's parodies of TV shows are particularly good, with Made in Chelsea, Call the Midwife and The Killing all being gently mocked in a loving, homage-like way. Expect more of the same in this episode, along with a host of new characters and situations.
