The Witchfinder General (Richard E Grant) bursts in to Rebecca Front's office to confront a group of grotesque witches, played by Mathew Baynton, Kevin Eldon and Dustin Demri-Burns.

Elsewhere, Frances Barber sings a few cheeky songs as Gracie Fields, Seb Cardinal plays a make-up-obsessed Fanny Craddock, Michelle Gomez is a foul-mouthed Gregorian-chanting Hildegard of Bingen and Doon Mackichan delivers an impassioned rant as the Statue of Liberty.

Finally, Sheila Reid plays a childish Shirley Temple, Morgana Robinson stars as Daphne du Maurier, Meera Syal is Zeus's downtrodden wife Hera and Marc Wootton surges in to the consulting room as the Hindi Goddess Kali, who is struggling to make friends.
