Spitting Image: Series 3 (1984)
Saturday 13th September 2008
Spitting Image - The Complete Third Series, released by Network, is available to buy on DVD for the first time on 29th September 2008 as a 3 - disc set. The inclusion of entertainment and sports personalities in the second series laid the foundation for the show's incredible success. The winning formula goes from strength to strength.
Not only has the series established itself as a staple of Sunday evening television, it is also during this time that the tide begins to turn: appearing on Spitting Image is gradually being seen as having "made it" as a public personality. Ronald Reagan still endlessly and forlornly searches for his missing brain; the Queen is still the hurried and overworked housewife surrounded by unreasonable, loud children and grand children, and the commentary on British society, politicians and the prime minister remains ever scathing and humorous.
The third instalment of this award-winning ITV comedy is filled to the brim with quality sketches.
The show continues to benefit from the vocal talent of Chris Barrie, Harry Enfield, Jon Glover, Steve Nallon and Kate Robbins. It also features writing from the nation's top wordsmiths including Kevin Cecil, Paul John Clark, Richard Curtis, Ian Hislop, Nick Newman, Rob Grant and Doug Naylor.
Subversive, caustic, witty and downright brilliant, the blend of latex, vocal mimicry plus excellent scripts ensures that Spitting Image - The Complete Third Series is a must-have item for all comedy fans and remains a landmark satire in British TV history.
