Spitting Image: The Complete Series 8
A milestone in television comedy, Spitting Image lifted satire to a new level for over a decade through the 1980s and '90s.
No target was safe from the series’ gunsights: politicians of all persuasions, Thatcher, Nelson Mandela and even the Royal Family could find themselves up for a ribbing on any given programme. This complete eighth series showcases Prince Edward asserting his masculinity, Kinnock denouncing the opposition for having ridiculous middle names and Alan Bennett and Thora Hird having a nice cup of tea.
This set features, amongst others, the talents of Chris Barrie, David Coker, Steve Coogan, Hugh Dennis, Chris Emmett, Steve Nallon, Enn Reitel and Kate Robbins
BAFTA-nominated many times, Spitting Image won a Bronze medal at the Montreux TV festival in 1984, firmly establishing its success.
