Trivia

Michael Dobbs, the author of the original book, was angered at the opening scene depicting Margaret Thatcher's funeral. As a result he demanded his name be removed from the credits which just say "Based on the novel The Final Cut" without mentioning his name. See more »

Goofs

When the security man at No. 10 enters the Urquharts' bedroom with his pistol drawn and at the ready, the gun actually has no live round in the chamber and is thus not ready to fire (we can tell this by the fact that the Glock's trigger is to the rear, which would not be the case if the action had been cycled to chamber a round).

Quotes

[Prime Minister Urquhart is watching Makepeace being interviewed on television]
Tom Makepeace: To quote the prime minister, "You might very well think that. I couldn't possibly comment."
Francis Urquhart: You bastard!

See this series! It's really literate and funny!
26 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

I can't recommend this series highly enough! All the actors are first rate, the script literate and hilarious! BBC has done a first rate job and this is one of the best things I have seen in years! Ian Richardson is perfect in this role! He's probably sick of hearing about it by now, but he was really wonderful, as was everybody else. A first rate production in all ways!
