Things, obviously, aren’t as they appear: Delany has a bizarre and unexplained connection with the undead along with a vicious temper, making numerous threats without doing anything particularly threatening.From these various exchanges – each filled to the brim with exposition – we’re left with dozens of unanswered questions, some of which can be inferred (Delany’s abandoned son is presumably his and Zilpha’s love child), others merely guessed at (did Delany make a pact with the devil in Africa? Unfortunately, by giving very little away it also leaves viewers with very little reason to care for any of these characters, including Delany, who appears to have righteous intentions but spends the majority of the hour brooding.“The Leftovers” returned in fine, upsetting form Sunday night — providing several torn souls at the tail end of what has seemed to be a brief lull of peace.
Years back Walliams was in sketch shows, sitcoms, took on various presenting roles and did the rounds of the chat show couches as a children's author.
The Walliams mania has mercifully died down and perhaps he has now subsided to being a camp Christmas thing.
See Jack Whitehall as you've never seen him before.

Jennifer Worth’s storylines have all been used up but there seems no end to the inventiveness of the current plots.
Indeed, some might say that series four (the first to depart from Worth’s memoirs and to not feature their star Jenny Lee, played by Jessica Raine) was the best yet despite concerns that the narrative would lose its momentum.– created by Tom Hardy, his father Chips, and frequent collaborator Steven Knight – pines after the same audience by giving away very little while hinting at lots to come.Set in 1814 London – which shares a similar dirty aesthetic with centres on blunt-talking James Delany, played by Hardy, who returns to England from Africa following his father’s mysterious death.Of course, heavyweight actors Hardy and Pryce give bucketfuls of gravitas to their roles, even if Hardy’s wavering Bane-like accent and ridiculous hat are sometimes unintentionally humorous.Other characters, including Chaplin’s Zilpha, have had very little to offer just yet, mainly thanks to the camera barely leaving Hardy’s face.It is his show, after all, yet some extended breaks from his intense performance could be beneficial. While I’m curious to see what happens to the grizzled Delany, there’s a frustration knowing so little about these characters after an hour’s viewing.
