Storyline

Once the tea girl Kate Loy is now the ruthless editor of scurrilous red top the Sunday Comet,owned by greedy Australian media magnate Stanhope Feast. The paper will stop at nothing for its grubby scoops including hacking into newsworthy people's phones though Kate gets off the hook following an early accusation by helping the police wire-tap criminals. Feast and his wife and son Connor arrive in England to offer the prime minister media support in exchange for an exclusive television deal but by now the claims of hacking will not go away and Kate and the Feasts are summoned to a commons commission. This leads to Connor selling out his father,Kate resigning and the paper closing though Kate and old time reporter Ray have one last edition to print as an act of revenge. An end title explains the fates of the protagonists,many of whom ended up in prison. Written by don @ minifie-1

Deserves a series
4 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hilarious and spot on. Acting is superb and the writing a gem. Written by Guy Jenkin, co-originator of Drop The Dead Donkey. Just like "Donkey" it is fresh and bang up to date. Hits the bullseye on all its targets, corrupt media barons, editors, tabloids, spiv politicians. I laughed out loud and will view again and again. Absolutely deserves a series. My only disappointment, no appearance by a Max Clifford character. If anyone ever deserves a kicking it is that sleaze-ball. Perhaps if this was developed as a series "Mad Max" could have a whole programme devoted to him. Well done to all concerned. Deserves a far wider viewing than it actually got, late at night tucked away on Channel 4. More please!
