Taskmaster: Dafty in the Middle (S14EP3 Channel 4 Thursday 13 October 2022)



Dafty in the Middle: As noble knights Dara Briain, Fern Brady, John Kearns, Munya Chawawa, and Sarah Millican compete to win this elaborate joust and become the 14th Taskmaster champion, the infallible Greg Davies serves as host. Little Alex Horne, the Taskmaster’s assistant, is tucked in between Greg’s feet and the centre of the action.

Alex takes notes and records numbers with admirable (almost annoying) efficiency as our group of five cowering comics venture into the wilderness. There will be many intriguing questions resolved by the end of this episode. Is  Alex Horne is able to throw a ball over a house?  Why did Munya Chawawa punch a sand bucket? Does the conga suit Dara Briain? Can Fern Brady fly? Can Sarah Millican withstand fire? Why do John Kearns’ own teammates dislike him so much? The most intriguing question of all is why the infamously cruel Taskmaster is treating the entire gang to dessert.
