DEAD RINGER is a British crime drama in which a man in a struggling tribute band switches places with his famous boy band counterpart.

Language

There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k'); milder terms include 'cock', 'bitch', 'dickhead', 'shit', 'bollocks', 'balls', 'bastard' and 'piss', in addition to use of the rude 'middle finger' gesture.

Violence

People are shot, resulting in sprays of blood. During a torture scene a heated metal implement is pressed against a man's bare torso, leaving a red mark. Milder violence includes knock-out punches and blows with heavy objects.

Sex

There is a scene of oral sex featuring crude sound effects. Moderate sex references include a man referring to a woman as a 'piece of fluff' and a sequence in which a man shoves money down a woman's bikini top in exchange for her spending the night with his employee.

A man sniffs an unidentified drug from an inhaler, and another man is found dead with vomit on his face after an off-screen drug overdose. There are also frequent visual and verbal references to the manufacture and distribution of a fictional drug.
