WHAT IS IT?

A six-part, semi­im­pro­vised sit­com about a civil ser­vice try­ing to im­ple­ment the will of the peo­ple af­ter a hastily ar­ranged ref­er­en­dum. In this case, the death penalty is to be rein­tro­duced to Bri­tain on a ma­jor­ity of 50.9% to 49.1%.

WHY SHOULD I LIS­TEN?

Well, rst of all, be­cause it’s very funny with ex­cel­lent per­for­mances by the co­me­di­ans who write and per­form it. But more im­por­tantly, it gives an in­sight into the (ex­ag­ger­ated) kind of dis­cus­sions that must be go­ing on in White­hall right now as Brexit is im­ple­mented in a deeply di­vided coun­try. If noth­ing else, it’s a good re­minder as to why ref­er­en­dums are a ter­ri­ble idea.

Lis­ten out for Harry En eld as the min­is­ter in charge of the death penalty, too.

HOW LONG AND HOW OF­TEN?

Half an hour per episode, just like a clas­sic sit­com. The

rst sea­son is six episodes long, but it’s un­clear if there will be more.
