Comic Strip Presents: The Hunt for Tony Blair

The original Comic Strip team star alongside the likes of Stephen Mangan and Ronni Ancona in this film noir take on New Labour.

The Hunt for Tony Blair

Tony Blair (played by Stephen Mangan) is on the run. He's been accused of killing his Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, and has fled Downing Street on a desperate quest to clear his name.

But he finds himself with no friends willing to give him sanctuary and is forced to turn to a reclusive Margaret Thatcher (played by Jennifer Saunders) who tries to seduce him.

Many of the original Comic Strip stars are present and correct in this 2011 film including Robbie Coltrane, Nigel Planer and the late Rik Mayall and they're joined by fresh faces including Ronni Ancona and Morgana Robinson.
