Rob and Steve are back. Six meals in six different places on a road trip through Spain from the North Atlantic to the Mediterranean coast- visiting Cantabria the Basque region Aragon Rioja Castile La Mancha and ending in Andalucia. Steve now turned 50, is still chasing love – he wants to get back together with his ex-girlfriend Mischa, but she is with another man. Rob’s acting career is going from strength to strength, his family life is fulfilling – he has had another child since Steve last saw him. Steve has just starred as a chef in a US TV series and is asked to do a set of restaurant reviews in Spain to publicise the show. As usual Rob will write the newspaper articles, this time using Don Quixote as inspiration. Meanwhile Steve is hoping to write a more ambitious book based on this trip and his earlier experiences in Spain. He imagines himself in the tradition of writers such as Orwell, Hemingway, and Laurie Lee. After all, Steve is now an Oscar nominated writer.

The Trip to Spain does start off a bit slowly as it’s really setting you up for the coming journey. There are a few impressions to begin with namely Mick Jagger but afterwards the journey begins to flow with some new impressions including David Bowie, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Barry Gibb…

Rob and Steve on yet another jolly? Is it too much? Another working holiday, c/o the Beeb. Hmmm.Coogan invites Brydon to join him for restaurant reviews in España, travelling from Basque Country all the way down to Malaga. For all the middle-agedom, Brydon’s star seems to be shining more reliably, Coogan’s comet having burned brighter but the streak fading into melancholia. Mick Jagger has replaced Michael Caine as the focus of their competition, both trying to hone their impressions. Coogan’s problematic relationships are there to…
