BBC3 (on iPlayer)
It’s been a long time coming but US cultural phenomenon Rupaul’s Drag Race begins in earnest on BBC3.
Michelle Visage, Graham Norton, Alan Carr and a bevy of guest judges will help determine which of the drag queens has the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to rule them all, and it will be quite interesting to see the differences between UK and US drag. Also: will they still “do” Snatch Game even though that title won’t really work on a UK-centric show?
Plenty of questions, and the distribution method certainly raises an eyebrow, although given the show’s UK presence has mainly been built up through Netflix and on-demand, may be quite smart. We’ll see.
