Ahead of tonight's (September 13) second episode of David Mitchell and Robert Webb's brand new comedy series Back, Digital Spy has an exclusive look at it.

The first episode saw over a million viewers tune in, and it was generally well-received by loyal Peep Show fans.

And, by the look of it, episode two is going to be just as cringe-inducing.

Back follows the adventures of Stephen (Mitchell), a run-of-the-mill loser who thinks his life is finally taking a turn for the better as he inherits his late father's pub… but the arrival of his long-lost foster brother Andrew (Webb) threatens to ruin all of his grand plans.

This tease of episode two – titled 'Unexpected Visitor At The Reading Of A Will' – sees Andrew try to upstage Stephen at his own father's will reading; and it works rather well.

"Sorry, I'm late," says Andrew.

"Sorry, Andrew, private family event," replies Stephen. "The will – it's core family. Just the solid core, blood family.

"Mum asked me to come along," adds Andrew. "Hope I'm not treading on any toes."

"No, I'm guessing you've been left a table lamp or something. Some pens..."

Guess we'll find out later.

Episode Two of Back, 'Unexpected Visitor at the Reading of a Will', airs at 10pm tonight (September 13) on Channel 4.
