Spitting Image's leading puppet Maggie Thatcher is laid to rest, but continues to dominate the Tory party after replacing John Major's brain with a remote-control. Elsewhere Bush Snr plots a war against a nutty Saddam Hussein, Fergie milks her status as a royal for all its worth, Graham Taylor's disasterous stint as England football manager begins, Gorbechev goes in search of the last potato in Russia and Neil Kinnock desperately tries to grab the media's attention.

The "series within a series" format continues with three puppets (Mr Spock, David Steel and an anteater) escaping their masters and facing the horrors of the real world (including a young Nick Hancock as a mugger). Stop-motion continues in the form of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles parody and the songs include such memorable numbers as No More Christmas Singles, Cry Gazza Cry and the Charity Song. What is amazing is how many of these sketches, despite being over twenty years old, are still relevant now. Just change the names and faces and bingo. Great satire and certainly nice to remember an age when TV shows could properly mock our rulers.

It took awhile but it's all worth it. Great series, features Thatcher in a coffin episode, Saddam's puppet makes his debut, and great songs from No More Christmas Singles, We're Guilty, Cry Gazza Cry, and The Charity Song. I'm really excited about series 10 coming up this October. :)
