Derren Brown plays Russian Roulette was a little overblown. Unsurprisingly really, considering the act of playing Russian Roulette is a pretty quick one. Instead we got an hour of Mr Brown trying to find the the weakest willed man in the country. If the program has one lasting effect, it is that the nervous kid who looked the dead spit of Iain Lee will now be preyed upon by conmen and anyone else with the barest smidgeon of psycho-linguistic programming under their belt to fleece him of his savings.

As for Derren himself, he panicked and guessed the wrong bullet. Or was that just for effect? Magic, when there is nothing magical about it, is just tiresome.
