    Following its debut on BBC4 in March 2011, Twenty Twelve returned for a second series on BBC2.

    The Olympics Deliverance Committee, headed by Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville), have a new set of challenges to face as the games draw ever closer. From a stand-off between the French and the Algerians over the 'shared belief centre' to the installation of new hand dryers in the bathrooms, the run up to the Olympics is not going to go smoothly for the team.

     pick of the bunch - for one final week - remains John Morton's iron fist inside a velvet glove... Tremendous performances and pin-point satire

    comic heaven... If the real Games are half as much fun as this, the London Olympics will be a triumph.

    It’s a great final episode, a zinger at the end of a too-brief series. Can we have an Olympic Games special in the summer, please? Alison Graham

    well plotted and boasts some splendid dialogue Andrew Billen

    Another perfectly judged script with superb performances, most notably Olivia Colman's PA. Solid gold stuff Julia Raeside

    Well observed, impeccably cast mock-dock ****

    Is it just us or is 'Twenty Twelve' getting funnier as the Olympics draw nearer?... the script is pitched perfectly between fondness and scepticism ****
