The wickedly funny impressions show arrived on television in 2002, having made waves and become an incredible success as a BBC Radio 4 series. BBC Radio Collection's volumes of episodes from the radio series have been incredibly successful, and now this volume collects the best moments from the first BBC1 TV series.Enter a surreal universe where David Dickinson goes looking for weapons of mass destruction in "Weapons Hunt", the Queen sells off the royal jewels on the QVC shopping channel, and Delia Smith turns homicidal and starts cooking up the competition. Elsewhere, Anne Robinson votes off The Weakest Disciple and Professor Sam Ryan from Silent Witness joins Rolf on Animal Hospital.
Also in the mix are an oddly threatening Michael Buerk, Saddam Hussein advertising Werther's Originals, and familiar favourites Tony Blair, Greg Dyke, and Kristy Wark. Obi-Wan Kenobi visits a second-hand car salesman, Ozzy Osborne takes over the role of Dumbledore in the new Harry Potter movie, and Doctor Who spends a weekend with the Cybermen family in Living with the Enemy.
Jon Culshaw, Jan Ravens, Kevin Connelly, Phil Cornwell, and Mark Perry prove that the ersatz can be even better than the real thing in these six sensational episodes.
