PopCult (TV): Pop will eat itself?

Ushering in upcoming posts revisiting the strand of my career involving storyboarding for television, it was enjoyable to note a closing circle of reality and fiction this week.
Comedian and writer Matt Berry, on the morning of the day his 3rd series of award-winning Channel Four comedy 'Toast of London' began broadcasting, guested across channels with the doyen of ITV daytime telly, Lorraine Kelly.

Looking through the opposite end of the telescope that evening, the first episode itself opened with MB as Steven Toast, again chatting with Kelly in exactly the same set.

A pleasurable metafictional shudder ran down the mind to view it all.

More slices of Toast - and my doings inside the creative toaster - shortly.
