Yes I thought that. Mind you they will have stiff competition from the real thing, look at Trump yesterday

I watched a few minutes of “Cartoon Trump” last night. Similar send-up to Spitting Image with caricatures of various Trump linked persona. I’ll have a look for both again.

Me too. Staggering. I wish her well. He did not attend my inauguration. He performed a role in government like many other people.

Im looking forward to it. However I think it will be a poorer, watered down, pc compliant version of what we remember :-(

Please tell me the BBC have not used the Licence money to remake one of their previous favourite series and are now only going to put it out on BritBox (the paid streaming service) and not on the one WE PAY THE LICENCE FOR.

I will combust.

Spitting Image was originally produced by Central TV (ITV) not the BBC.

ITV are co-owners of BritBox

I expect you are right, lets hope for the best and they pursue a robust line of humour, just noticed Britbox give you a 30 day free trial so that could last quite a while with a few email addresses grin2 I'll maybe have to invent a Doris@Doms Specsavers.co.uk

This is a quote from BBC news site today "The new version will be produced by production company Avalon. Roger Law, co-creator of the original, is on board as executive producer.

He has previously promised the new Spitting Image will be "more outrageous, audacious and salacious than the previous incarnation."
