Review

Tonight Angela Merkel and Nicola Sturgeon become rivals, the Murdoch Bunch play Monopoly (Ben Miller’s Rupert Murdoch is brilliant, even if we’ve heard the joke before) and Tracey’s hooligan Dame Judi Dench smashes up a crockery shop.

The pick of the skits, though, is her ordinary mother’s sung lament for a family lost to digital technology (where even the dog is addicted to films about sausages), and also her Germaine Greer by a bus stop. Reimagining the feminist writer as an intellectually homeless bag lady feels harsh but, like the best of Tracey, it also carries a ring of truth, poignancy and fellow-feeling.

Summary

Nicola Sturgeon is so keen on Angela Merkel's style that she will go to any length to get the look. It's a big day for security guard Leah, while top New York producer Bernice Rubin heads to the UK to secure some Shakespeare for Broadway. Comedy sketches, with Ben Miller and Anna Maxwell Martin.
