Dead Ringers: Series 19 plus Christmas Specials

Dead Ringers: Series 19 plus Christmas Specials

The BBC Radio 4 Impressions Show


The complete Series 19 of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 impressions show

The Dead Ringers team are back for another series of the topical comedy show that will go on forever – much like the Brexit negotiations.

In these six shows, the entire cast of the Tory leadership election make an appearance – even that one who no-one’s ever heard of. Plus, Theresa May brings her Withdrawal Agreement in to The Repair Shop, the Queer Eye gang give Ann Widdecombe a makeover, and British superheroes the National Treasures welcome their newest member: Lorraine Kelly.

There’s terror in store as a haunted Boris Johnson meets the Mr Hyde to his Mr Hyde, Jeremy Hunt finds a way to put his talents to good use in 24 Hours in A & E, and Tom ‘The Watsonater’ behaves in a way that’s completely unacceptable to Jeremy Corbyn – he takes a clear view on something.

Among the other celebrities getting the Dead Ringers treatment are Donald Trump, Nigel Farage, Chuka Umunna, Andrew Neil and Paul McCartney, as masterful impressionists Jon Culshaw, Lewis MacLeod, Jan Ravens, Debra Stephenson and Duncan Wisbey take a satirical swipe at the worlds of politics, media and entertainment.

Also included with the latest series are the three Christmas 2019 special episodes.
