    The award winning BBC Radio 4 impressions show returns with a new cast of characters.

    2014 saw a welcome return to the airwaves for the comedy show that holds in its sights every programme, institution and politician you hold dear.

    In these six episodes, Michael Portillo attempts to hide from his fellow This Week presenters; David Mitchell appears in EastEnders; Gareth Malone gives Ed Milliband tips on sounding normal; Masterchef meets The Great British Bake-Off; the European Space Agency receives some unusual telephone calls; Elton John sings nursery rhymes, and Nigel Farage hosts a podcast.

    That’s just for starters - dozens of other familiar figures and programmes are given the Dead Ringers treatment by the accomplished impressionists Jon Culshaw, Jan Ravens, Duncan Wisbey, Lewis MacLeod, Debra Stevenson.

Tom Jamieson and Nev Fountain are part of the principal joke writing team for Private Eye magazine. Fountain and Jamieson were the head writers of the award winning satirical sketch series DEAD RINGERS which transferred from Radio 4 to BBC2 in 2002, where it then ran for seven successful series and subsequently on BBC TV (and was revived for radio in 2014). They have also contributed to many radio and television comedy programmes, including HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU, 2DTV, THE NEWS QUIZ and BIG IMPRESSION. The pair are also responsible for the Radio 4 historical comedy ELEPHANTS TO CATCH EELS and TXT MSSG RCVD, the first episode of the BBC3 anthology series TWISTED TALES.
