Giles Wemmbley Hogg Goes Off

BBC Radio 4 sitcom about a posh man. 31 episodes (5 series), 2002 - 2019. Stars Marcus Brigstocke, Tom Goodman-Hill, Catherine Tate, Adrian Scarborough and others.

Brexit special - Article 50

The upper-middle-class twit returns for a one-off special in which he vows to sort out Brexit.

Further details

He's back! Marcus Brigstocke stars as Budleigh Salterton's biggest idiot, come to help us over the cliff-edge in a show that - in a tribute to Brexit - will still be being put together right up to the last minute.

It's misery chez the Wemmbley Hogg household. Since Giles's mother - Mums - and his father - Peter Wemmbley Hogg, same spelling - voted on opposite sides of the Brexit coin, nobody is speaking to each other anymore and Giles isn't even allowed to use the word "chez".

So, if - like Giles - you're confused, miserable and torn between the Remoaners and the Brexiteers, then this is the show for you as, in one glorious half-hour special, Giles decides that for the sake of his family - and probably Britain - he's going to ruddy well SORT IT OUT.
