Trivia

The first series ended on a cliffhanger, with the intention being that the programme would return for a second series. However this was cancelled because the first series received poor audience ratings. After its initial run in the UK, a title card was added to the final episode when it was broadcast in Canada and a few other places, but not for its PBS run in the USA. This caption said that Mrs Pritchard, feeling that she had served a purpose, resigned as Prime Minister, and that she and her husband were living happily at home with their family in Eatanswill. Catherine Walker had become Prime Minister and was successfully leading the Purple Alliance; she never married. See more »

Nice starter for 10
4 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Epiosde 1 screened last night - Tuesday 3 October

It was a good start with plenty to develop in the further 5 episodes.

Often in these kind of shows where real people play themselves, the real people lack credibility - They appear to act. But here Kirsty Wark and Peter Snow played themselves with the authority one should expect from the original.

Jane Horrocks was excellent and her beleaguered hubby was entirely believable.

There was also an excellent balance between shabby politicians and exposing the job they do as remorselessly difficult. It is to hoped that this balance can be maintained throughout the production.

Interesting that it is billed as comedy when the laughs were few and far between. Not that that is a bad thing.
