Dead Ringers: An Alien Has Landed

A space ship is heading towards earth. The world leaders respond - all that is except Donald Trump who believes it's all fake news.

A space ship is heading towards earth. The world leaders respond - all that is except Donald Trump who believes it's all fake news. For reasons which gradually become clear the alien, (who's name is Geoff) has chosen Great Britain as his home from home. His impression of Britain comes from 70s television - a more innocent and cosy world. Swept up in a celebrity rollercoaster, Geoff enjoys his life in Britain, and Brits take him to their hearts. That is... until he becomes just a little too successful when he wins both Strictly and Bake Off, so beginning Geoff's fall from grace.

Written by Private Eye writers Tom Jamieson and Nev Fountain, together with Tom Coles, Ed Amsden, Sarah Campbell, Laurence Howarth, and others.
