TalkbackThames for BBC Three, 2 September to 14 October 2010 (7 episodes in 1 series)


Each week, a well-known public figure - from the President of the United States to Father Christmas - hypothetically kicks the bucket. Three celebrities then compete to convince a comedy panel led by Simon Bird (The Inbetweeners) that they are the best candidate to take over the job, by means of answering questions and taking part in random challenges.
