Having It Off

Having It Off was Spitting Image’s answer to The Lover’s Guide, released in 1993. Unusually for the show, it mixes human and puppet sketches. Try and guess which are which. They are all themed around different aspects of sex, in what I assume to be a parody of the original. Yes, I said ‘assume’. Stop […]

Food Featurette

Another disc, another musical featurette. This one, included on the Series III DVD, is set to I Got You (I Feel Good) by James Brown, a song which is familiar to everyone in the Western World, apart from John Hoare.

So, the September 2003 shooting date has now officially been put back to May 2004. Our reaction was split between “Wah!” and “Hooray!”. “Wah”, because obviously it’s yet more delays.
