The Downfall of Hitler is a sketch from Dead Ringers, a comedy radio and television series from the BBC that parodied politics and popular culture. The television adaptation of Dead Ringers ran from 15 March 2002 to 29 March 2007.
The sketch parodies the growing disapproval of then British prime minister Tony Blair, mainly due to the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Dead Ringers compared the invasion of Iraq to Hitler’s failed attempt to invade the Soviet Union.
It is one of the earliest parodies of Downfall, although not in the form that the prevalent parody movement is known for.
