Ep 3: Crimewave

Episode 3 of 4

The boys are recording their new sketch show in their flat, but it's hard getting on with it when their neighbourhood's been hit by a crimewave.

The latest series from Ben and Alex, aka "The Pin", is a sketch-sitcom hybrid. The award-winning sketch duo are forced to record their latest series in their flat and the boys are glad of the new creative freedom this opportunity presents, away from the "prying eyes of the BBC". Unfortunately this week, a crimewave has hit their neighbourhood, so Ben and Alex are forced to take drastic measures.
