Spitting Image - The Complete Series (DVD)
The complete series 1-7 of the groundbreaking 1980s satirical puppet show.
No target was safe from the series' gunsights: Margaret Thatcher and her cabinet, the opposition, the Liberals, Ronald Reagan, the Pope and the Royal Family could all find themselves up for a painful ribbing on any given programme.
The 1980s satire took no prisoners, cruelly lampooning politicians of all parties but reserving special venom for Thatcher and her ministers, notably a bovver-boy Norman Tebbit, a bumbling Geoffrey Howe and a wild, gung-ho Michael Heseltine! The show also targeted the royal family – Charles was shown as a blundering crackpot, Diana a vain airhead and the Queen Mother a horse racing-obsessed alcoholic.
The series was worked around the current week's news stories and featured a number of famous impressionists, including Chris Barrie, Rory Bremner, Phil Cornwell, Steve Coogan, John Culshaw, Harry Enfield and Kate Robbins.
