Love Judge Dredd is a misleading title. I had assumed
that the audio was going to be based around a Judge Dredd

Judge Dredd as he goes around his daily job. Talk
Pastry is the nightmare talkshow host, obviously based on
Alan Partridge. Nowhere is this more evident than when he
has a Dredd impressionist on his show who says he has never
done an impression of Pastry as he only impersonates famous
people. This is very similar to the Alan Partridge radio show
where he interviews a Spitting Image impressionist

Pastry takes us on duty with Dredd we meet up with some peculiar
character including the brilliant Brucie Squires (based on
Jimmy Saville) who want to commit suicide to teach his mother
a lesson. We also meet up with some robosexuals (they don't

for their right to have sex with their mechanical friends.
whole production is played for laughs and I found myself laughing

known TV ad for the police force.
this isn't quite up to the standard of previous audio releases,
it is still provides a well produced hours worth of entertainment.
