Part public health announcement, part party political broadcast, all hilarious. I'm tempted to move to NE Somerset just so I can vote for him!

Peter & Emma Shaw 96 days ago

Yes! He talks more sense than most politicians and has a genuine passion to make the world a better and happier place. The best manifesto you'll hear this year.

Patricia Silver 96 days ago

If I lived in his area, I'd vote for this man! He is insightful and truly understands the challenges to the medical system, but presents it with humour. Great show.

We saw Dr Phil last year with his show ‘telling the wrong man he had cancer, and other funny stories’ and thought that he was the best comedian we saw that year.
So we came with high expectations to this year’s show, and he delivered.
Very funny, but with a message as well.

I’ve seen Dr Phil before (no, not about that persistent rash ...) and so looked forward to a well-crafted, thought-provoking and informative hour. I was not disappointed.

Witty, clever, funny and tear-jerking by turns Dr Phil sets out his manifesto for the future health and well-being of England (health being a devolved issue) and his bid to stand against Jacob Rees-Mogg in the next election. I was convinced enough to consider moving to Somerset to vote for him!

Thanks Dr Phil for a great show, I’m off now to sort out my Clangers.

Entertaining as always but with a serious message about the need to reverse the last few years of government policy on the NHS before it gets sold off. Dr Phil literally wants to stand against Rees-Mogg in his constituency and hopes to encourage a wider base of people and parties to work together to save the NHS. The show is enjoyable, informative and inspiring. If only all doctors were like Phil and all politicians were too. The 6 of using my group enjoyed everything about it. Except his shirt!

In this show Hammond moves away slightly from health and the NHS and gives us his opinion on what ails politics as a whole.
