Spitting Image - The Complete 11th Series

A milestone in television comedy, Spitting Image lifted satire to a new level through the 1980s and '90s. No target was safe from its gunsights: politicians of all persuasions, even the Royal Family and the Pope could find themselves up for a ribbing on any given programme.

BAFTA-nominated many times, the Bronze medal won at 1984's Montreux TV festival firmly established Spitting Image's success for over a decade. Packed with more wickedly witty sketches and spoof songs, this complete eleventh series employs the familiar vocal talents of Steve Coogan, Rory Bremner, Jan Ravens, John Sessions and Harry Enfield, among numerous others.

In this series the entire Labour Party attends a drama workshop, Prince Charles tries to rein in William's video-game addiction, Jeffrey Archer tries to finish his novel, and there's ongoing televised coverage as Boris Yeltsin introduces the first loaf of bread in Russia. A retired Alistair Burnett is still reading the news at ten every night, and we share some intimate moments over dinner with John and Norma Major...
