Andrew Davies originally wanted to film the series at the University of Warwick, Coventry (UK). The University were unhappy as to how they would be portrayed. Instead, the exterior shots were all done at either Keele or Birmingham University. See more »
One of the very best of 1980s TV. Spot on scripts satirising Thatcher's Britain. Excellent cast too: Peter Davidson & Barbara Flynn of course, but also a young Hugh Grant making an appearance in #1.2 as a Scottish lay-preacher.
In the UK, Series 1 was shown on BBC4 recently (at close to midnight) as part of an Andrew Davies season. Hopefully we'll get series 2 again as well at some point.
