While Brooker was Bandersnatched
2 January 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

With Charlie Brooker tied up with Black Mirror.

Rhys Thomas OBE steps into the breach with a spoof look at 2018.

Some viewers might be shocked to see Jeremy Thorpe approaching Paddington Bear with a jar of Vaseline or Sir Derek Jacobi reading Trainspotting as a Cbeebies children's bedtime story.

Some of the footage was very well integrated although some of it was also a bit hit and miss.

It was a better look review of the year than the pompous output from the news channels.
