Another great comedy series from the Queen of Comedy
13 July 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Who else but Penelope Keith could handle this series, depicting the life of a newly elected - by a tiny margin - Labour MP? It's sort of a "YES, PRIME MINISTER" for MPs instead of the Government and their officials, and though it may lack the wit and conflicts of that elegant series, it more than makes up for it in the acting department. All the actors in "YES, PRIME MINISTER" were excellent, and here the inimitable Penelope is joined by the marvelous and sleazily charming George Baker and the effervescent Paul Young. (Not to be confused with the singer, by the way.) I would love to see this excellent little series released on DVD - there are only 18 episodes in all, so one DVD set would do nicely, thank you...

Here's to hoping...
