Light-hearted look at politics
5 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was charming. From the left-out-of-the-loop, well-meaning, but ultimately political creature that was the Deputy PM; to his clumsy and lackluster staff; to the exasperated press secretary trying to cover his public blunders; to the behind-the-back political maneuvering of his enemies; to his subversive son with ties to an anarchy group; to the heart-breaking despair of one of his constituents with an autistic child; it was all beautifully played by a wonderful cast. I originally watched it because I'm a David Tennant fan, but it was the Deputy himself that made the show. A wonderful performance by Warren Clarke.
