TV - Toast of London


Can you hear me, Steven? Ahead of the eagerly anticipated new series Toast of Tinseltown, all three series of Toast of London are now available to watch exclusively on BBC iPlayer...


Press Release

Written and created by Arthur Mathews and Matt Berry and produced by Objective Fiction, 18 episodes of Toast of London originally aired between 2012 and 2015 to critical and audience acclaim, as well as seeing Matt scoop the BAFTA in 2015 for Best Male Comedy Performance.

The series stars Matt as Steven Toast, a RADA trained actor living in the heart of Soho’s Theatre-land. Forced to share digs with eccentric fellow actor Ed Howzer-Black (played by Robert Bathurst). Ill-advised by his agent Jane Plough (played by Doon Mackichan) and mistreated by his peers including arch nemesis Ray ‘Bloody’ Purchase (Harry Peacock), Toast becomes increasingly desperate in his attempts to get the career and recognition he adamantly thinks he deserves.



Toast of London is available to stream now on BBC iPlayer.

Toast of Tinseltown, which sees tortured thespian Steven Toast relocates to the ultimate actor's playground - Hollywood - starts on Tuesday 4 January at 10pm on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.
