'''''Dead Ringers''''' was a comedy sketch show on [[BBC]] Two which frequently parodied and referenced ''[[The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy]]'' and the works of [[J.R.R. Tolkien]] more broadly. It ran for seven series, between [[2002]] and [[2007]].

In Episode 1, the use of [[Bigatures]] by [[Weta Workshop]] for ''[[The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy|The Lord of the Rings Trilogy]]'' was referenced in a sketch wherein [[wikipedia:Tony Blair|Tony Blair]] claimed the [[wikipedia:Iraq War|Iraq War]] was all faked with the use of models. Also, the show parodied [[wikipedia:How Clean Is Your House?|How Clean Is Your House?]] with [[wikipedia:Aggie MacKenzie|Aggie MacKenzie]] calling herself "''the [[Gollum]] of grime''" and the owner's house being described as "''a cross between [[Mordor]] and Afghanistan''".<ref name="S3E1">''[[wikipedia:Dead Rings (comedy)|Dead Ringers]]'', Series 3, Episode 1.

In Episode 2, parodying the fact that the [[wikipedia:Prime Minister of Thailand|Prime Minister]] of [[wikipedia:Thailand|Thailand]], [[wikipedia:Thaksin Shinawatra|Thaksin Shinawatra]], had tried to purchase [[wikipedia:Liverpool F.C.|Liverpool Football Club]], BBC News reports that "''another foreign leader with a questionable human rights record''", [[Saruman]], had bought [[wikipedia:Newcastle United F.C.|Newcastle United F.C.]] The manager, [[wikipedia:Bobby Robson|Bobby Robson]], explains that [[Shelob]] and [[Sméagol]] (invisible thanks to [[The One Ring]]) will be playing for the team.<ref name="S3E2">''[[wikipedia:Dead Rings (comedy)|Dead Ringers]]'', Series 3, Episode 2.

The third episode combined the characters of the recently-returned, [[wikipedia:Auf Wiedersehen, Pet|Auf Wiedersehen, Pet]] - a programme about seven fictional British construction-workers working abroad - whose characters go to [[Middle-earth]] in search of work. They are employed by [[Gandalf]] to rebuild [[The Shire]] following the [[Scouring of the Shire]], but - in common with all series of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet -  a nasty foreman turns up ([[Saruman]]) and one of the team falls in love with a local (an [[orcs|orc]]) who is then taught to speak [[wikipedia:Geordie|Geordie]].<ref name="S3E3">''[[wikipedia:Dead Rings (comedy)|Dead Ringers]]'', Series 3, Episode 3 (see 16:30 - 18:16).
