A daft old man who stole a magic box. Anyway, did I ever tell you that I stole it. Well, I borrowed it, I was always going to take it back. Oh, that box. Amy… you’ll dream about that box. It’ll never leave you. Big and little at the same time. Brand new and ancient and the bluest blue ever.

"I’m not laughing. I haven’t laughed since my wife died."

"Why did you laugh when your wife died?"

A Touch of Cloth is Charlie Brooker’s “spoof of every British crime drama made in the last decade”, which packs more spot-on parody, visual gags and groan-inducing puns into the first five minutes of each episode than most comedies manage in an entire series. It’s both excellent and underrated.

It stars John Hannah as DCI Jack Cloth and Suranne Jones as DC Anne Oldman, along with regulars and guest-stars including Julian Rhind-Tutt, Navin Chowdhry, Adrian Bower, Daisy Beaumont, Todd Carty, Anna Chancellor, Stephen Dillane, Karen Gillan.

There have been three two-episode series and I think you’ll all love it. If that winning argument hasn’t convinced you yet, check out this trailer for the first series or even better this awesome chase sequence.

In my quest to spread it’s spoof-tastic joy I’ve uploaded all six episodes to Mega, so they are available to download here [x]. Enjoy!
