Did You Know?


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 »

When will we see the later episodes in Scotland?
11 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

The later episodes were replaced by football matches, please arrange for us to see them. My wife and I greatly enjoyed the episodes we saw for, though the plot is unlikely, it expressed the feelings of many that politicians pay no attention to the wishes of the electorate and follow their own agenda. I have long thought that parliament should move from London further north. I would choose York or even Manchester or Newcastle rather Bradford in the play. This will never happen for MPs would then not be able to earn large sums decorating City offices. Incidentally I think an MPs job should be full-time so no outside earning should be allowed. I belong to a profession, medicine, trusted by the population and think politicians should get their act together, stop lying to us on Radio & TV and start to earn our respect. They do not seem to realise that lying is easily detected on TV.
