Spitting Image to return on BritBox

Thought the first part might be largely sketches they'd already shown.

Not really encouraging me to get BritBox to watch the rest of this - given the political figures of today it just feels like they are playing this straight.

I've heard that said quite a lot recently but it was often said during the Thatcher years too. It's not unique to this moment in time.

One of the generic 'extra' puppets appears to be slightly modelled on Cilla Black's (albeit with smaller teeth)

Looks more like Kate Robbins (who did a lot of voices on the original series) to me
Write that down in your copybook now.

Perhaps the Cilla puppet had a hint of Kate thrown in considering she did the voice.

One of my favourite stories is how, after Kate Robbins wrote the original Surprise Surprise theme tune, she sung it to Cilla, impersonating her voice. And Cilla loved it, and approved it for the show.

Which is all that matters, 3.2m potential customers for Britbox.

Did it have the PP logo at the beginning considering the last scene was solely an ad for BritBox, or with it being an ITV do they not need that?

I've been through most of the episodes over the last week and it's more hit than miss, I quite like it. The puppets and sets are really good. It probably could have done quite well on ITV so it's shame it's hidden on Britbox but I guess the series wouldn't have been commissioned at all if it wasn't for the service.
