Richard Herring teams up with an 128 year old, 'handsy', ventriloquist doll made by his great-grandad to review the day's newspapers in an attempt to put to rest the ghosts of old and failed double acts he's been in. It's a format that I am sure you've seen before, but hopefully we can give it a fresh spin. Unprepared and unrehearsed, Ally and Herring have no idea what the other one is about to say and as long as the offensive stuff is said by the dummy then no one can touch us. But which one's the dummy?

Ian Twitch's 30 episode commission is up, so Rich is fighting for his life here. Will he be back for Series 2? And when? He manages to cram in pretty much every puppet into this swansong, whilst very much treating it like the end of term treat it is. The future hangs heavy over those who wear the crown or wield the puppet of someone holding a crown and there's echoes of the darkness that will filter through the next, more gritty series. But for now, there's some four way ventriloquism, some fox time travel, Brian Blessed, Terry the producer, puppets fighting for their inclusion in future shows and more questioning of whether just calling yourself something actually makes you something. Thanks for all the support over the last however many months 30 weeks is. We'll meet again.
