Dead Ringers

When news broke earlier this month that top impressions show Dead Ringers was to return to radio it took everyone by surprise. We all assumed the show was long gone, with only one single special since 2005. It's brilliant it's back though - it should never have gone away. Impressions are a great way of taking a satirical bite out of the great and not so good. Jon Culshaw and Jan Ravens return, and they're joined by The Secret World cast, producer Bill Dare's other show. Radio 4, 6:30pm. Guide

Also: others new radio shows, and The Mimic. Schedule
