Spitting Image To Return

Spitting Images of Dame Helen Mirren and Kate WinsletSpitting Image is to return to ITV in 2008, twelve years after it was scrapped; but computer animations will take the place of the old latex puppets. So, we can expect a visually more sophisticated show than the original, but what about jokes? The evidence across TV channels is that comedy writers are a dying breed. They may actually be extinct. Pity, because our arrogant, useless politicians need to be jerked out of their complacency, and witty political satire is the best way to do it.
