Toast Slice 4: Episode 5 – 'Man of Sex' Pt.1

What was left of my work on the very well-received – and arguably best yet – 3rd series of Arthur Mathews' and Matt Berry's 'Toast of London' appeared last night in this the penultimate episode.
The work of long hours for me – and complex challenges on the filming days for Michael Cumming and the crew – passed in seconds on-screen. Twas ever thus.
I boarded a sequence representing a game-changing grittier realism for the show, as Toast is run over by a steamroller driven by his crazed ex-wife Ellen – played alarmingly by Amanda Donohoe.

The results are harrowing for Toast, and presented in a fiercely realistic way that brings home the consequences of violence.
