I was giong to offer you 2000
Am I going to have to write it myself Dave and not pay you any money?
Pub etc?
Nice glass of dutch wine?
Well I hope we haven't upset absolutely everyone
I'll do an interview at six
You're leaking
But Dan, last time I had to write it for you, becuase you went a bit
You know the stray scene, straight on straight gay action?
Quite hillarious
Happens in working class family pubs, like the Grey Lion, a lot of builders
Do it, then write about it
Toss off a builder, then write about it
Ashcroft goes stray for pay
Have you read it?
Over 18 etc.
Shit or something
Unless they are
Stupid people think it's cool, smart people think it's a joke, also cool
But Max Herbert at The Weekend On Sunday agrees
Listen Dan, I'd love to debate the tits off this, but I've got an 11:07
I'm one of them
Wear it out in mongland
I hear you are dressing up as preacher man
Apparently you are
Nathan Barley just told me you were doing a term
Where's the ice cream? Where's the ice cream? Where's the ice cream? Where's the ice cream? Where's the ice cream?
Any fucking suggestions?
Nice one Danbo
Meiow


Nathan Barley is a Channel 4 sitcom written by Charlie Brooker and Chris Morris, starring Nicholas Burns, Julian Barratt and Claire Keelan, which follows the exploits of a loathsome, fictional twenty-something Hoxton, London media type. The first episode of six weekly episodes was broadcast on 11 February 2005 on Channel 4. Described by his own creator as a 'meaningless strutting cadaver-in-waiting', the character originated on Charlie Brooker's TVGoHome – a website parodying television listings – as the focus of a fly-on-the-wall documentary called Cunt. After the cult success of TVGoHome, the name "Nathan Barley" was frequently used pejoratively towards those whose lifestyles were satirised by the series. Contents [hide] * 1 Plot * 2 Characters * 3 Promotion * 4 Cast * 5 Nathan Barley 2 * 6 References * 7 External links [edit] Plot Nathan Barley played by Nicholas Burns is a webmaster, guerrilla filmmaker, screenwriter, DJ and in his own words, a "self-facilitating media node". He is convinced he is the epitome of urban cool, and therefore secretly terrified he might not be, which is why he reads Sugar Ape magazine, his bible of cool. The magazine is an obvious parody of Vice Magazine and even has one issue called "The Vice Issue". In reality however his output is of no real interest to anyone but him and his immediate friends. The website consists of stupid pranks caught on camera, photos of him with attractive women and famous figures (some of them digitally edited to insert himself), and photos of him standing on street corners in major cities around the world. He is fully of the belief that because he has a camera, some knowledge of web publishing and a webspace, this he has a talent. The humour derives from the rapid rise of both the internet and digital television, and the assumption by publishers and broadcasters that almost any such work is worthy of attention. Barley and his peers are often hired ahead of actual journalists and talented writers trying to make intelligent points, such as the earnest documentary film maker Claire Ashcroft, and her brother Dan Ashcroft, a jaded and apathetic hack who, having written an article for Sugar Ape entitled "The Rise of the Idiots", is disgusted to find that "the idiots" in question – Nathan and his contemporaries – have adopted him as their spiritual leader, failing to see that they are the very people he was criticising. [edit] Characters The series features two other central characters, siblings Dan (Julian Barratt) and Claire Ashcroft. Dan – an instantly recognisable Brooker point-of-reference – dislikes everything Nathan Barley stands for, while Claire seeks to highlight the plight of the inner city's homeless and drug-dependent. Ironically, while Dan sees a clear distinction between himself and the "idiots", he's frequently forced to compromise his own ethics in order to earn a living, and seems to be fighting the dawning realisation that he may actually be the very thing he despises. At the same time, Claire, who clearly wants to see herself as socially responsible and philanthropic, ultimately only seeks to further her own career. This sets the scene for an unusually open-ended, and certainly introspective, satire-bordering-on-social-commentary. Other recurring characters include the staff at Dan Ashcroft's magazine, Sugar Ape, such as asinine chief editor Jonatton Yeah? (Charlie Condou), Ned Smanks (Richard Ayoade) and Rufus Onslatt (Spencer Brown), a pair of gormless graphics designers, Sasha the receptionist (one of the few non-'idiots' in the show), and the eccentric and ludicrous Doug Rocket, founder member of The Veryphonics (a parody of David A. Stewart of Eurythmics), played by comedian David Hoyle. Dan Ashcroft's flatmate is a DJ called 'Jones', who appears blissfully unaware of the antisocial cacophony he creates. Jones is played by Noel Fielding, Barratt's partner in comic duo The Mighty Boosh. [edit] Promotion A piece of Nathan's artwork. A piece of Nathan's artwork. Advertising for the series attracted some attention, with billboards advertising a fictitious yet almost plausible mobile telephone, the Wasp T12 Speechtool ("it's well weapon"), appearing throughout the UK. This device was advertised as being exceptionally loud, with several hugely annoying ringtones, a giant key for the number 5 (allegedly the most common number), a powerful projector, a business card printer and miniature turntables for scratching MP3s. It was also apparently "shark-proof". Barley's website, www.trashbat.co.ck, serves as an official site for the television series, and remains active as of August 2008. The DVD of the series was released in October 2005, featuring all six episodes, a host of extras (including the pilot) and a booklet written by Nathan featuring his 'artwork'. The artwork in question is largely in the style of prolific graffiti artist Banksy and the book could easily be mistaken for a book showcasing Banksy's work.

The new series will centre on Barley's new-found employment in a general "media-facilitation" role for a small East-London based terrorist organisation.[3][4] Further evidence of another series has been given weight when Flak magazine reported that Chris Morris and Charlie Brooker were working around the scripts amongst other projects.[5]
