Penelope Keith CBE OBE is the Queen of British Comedy!, 17 June 2008
Author: ( from United States

I don't know why the High Sheriff of Surrey Penelope Keith CBE OBE is not considered the reigning queen of British comedy. She has more British comedies to her credit than anybody else that I know. In this show, she plays a minister of parliament better known as MP Jean Price. She gets elected and must battle the other politicians and the men's world that was normally parliament. The show had a brief run on my local PBS station and I haven't seen it since then. It was a good classic comedy with smart writing and brilliant acting with serious topics that concerned the ordinary Britons that she represents. I would want Jean Price as my representative for Parliament or my congressional representative in the United States Congress. She is smart and clever and knows it. She is married and her children are grown. The show should be available on DVD to enjoy for us all over again.
