There are the shockingly delusional, and then there is David Brent. At 55, he’s taken a step down from management for a rep job at loo product purveyors Lavichem. But he has a dream – that he can still become a rock sensation. He’s so confident in his ambition that he cashes in his pension fund and sets out on the road, rockumentary crew in tow, for a rather localised tour of England, hiring a backing band who are only in it for the cash. He’ll prove his doubters wrong, won’t he? Possibly the most cringe-inducing and least self-aware character to ever have ever peered out of our screens, Ricky Gervais’ brilliant – and increasingly desperate – creation pushes everything (and everybody) to the limit here. At times you might actually feel sorry for him. Briefly.
