American tourists in Britain

Jackie and Hal are Americans who just love everything British.

Featuring: Tracey Ullman, Aaron Neil & Michael Brandon.


Third helping of repatriated ribaldry from Ullman's new series, and the recurring characters continue to bed in. Tonight's treats include Dame Maggie Smith's new green screen-ready showreel, events unfolding inside the HQ of a corporation stamping twee slogans on to premium earthenware, Dame Judi Dench's ongoing crime spree, and a raucous rock opera documenting Rebekah Brooks's return to the Chipping Norton set. Ullman's impressive ability to inhabit contrasting personas again outshines a patchy script.

Radio Times review

After two cracking episodes, it's time to see if Tracey Ullman has any other comic gems in her locker apart from her fabulous turns as Angela Merkel and theatrical Dames Maggie Smith and Judi Dench. The doofus American couple who love all things English is easily her weakest sketch of the series so far.

Fortunately, the show is rescued by a triumphant song-and-dance routine in which she plays former Sun editor Rebekah Brooks. If the red-haired Murdoch executive isn't popular with some of the other members of the Chipping Norton set, here she's dealt a pretty rough time - proving that our Trace isn't afraid of tweaking some powerful noses.

Ben Dowell, Radio Times, 19th January 2016
