An Alien Has Landed
The Dead Ringers
team imagine what would happen if an alien visited Earth. A one-off special for Radio 4
's drama slot.
A space ship is heading towards earth. The world leaders respond - all that is except Donald Trump who believes it's all fake news. For reasons which gradually become clear the alien, (who's name is Geoff) has chosen Great Britain as his home from home. His impression of Britain comes from 70s television - a more innocent and cosy world. Swept up in a celebrity rollercoaster, Geoff enjoys his life in Britain, and Brits take him to their hearts. That is... until he becomes just a little too successful when he wins both Strictly and Bake Off, so beginning Geoff's fall from grace.
