Claudia O'Doherty: What Is Soil Erosion?

I've just read a great ThreeWeeks review and I couldn't have put it better myself:

"Are you a soil erosion enthusiast? Well, don't get too excited. "Let's get rill!" Claudia bellows at the audience as we are speedily guided through her 26-part documentary; bizarrely Australian TV execs have failed to see its brilliance. Recalling 'Look Around You', O'Doherty's nonsensical science demonstrations include using rocks as puppets, disintegrating a pudding and downing pints of a mysterious black fluid. Our stained turtleneck wearing host is manically enthusiastic, verging on mentally unstable, but an instantly likeable creation who confidently cruises through her own unique brand of comedy. We may learn nothing about the erosion of soil, but Claudia O'Doherty does a great job of making us giggle".

A thought.

Claudia O'Doherty pulled a Jonny Sweet with this follow-up show. If it works the first time, do it again. And why not, mate?
