With spin doctors ery much in the spotlight of late, this TV adaption of the BBC radio series could hardly have picked a better time to rear its head.

Excellent series, really witty and the Stephen Fry is sensational. If only I could be as brilliantly deceptive as his character - he's a morally challenged rogue but so lovable!
Only two things that bug me are:
1. Alison is just too stupid and I'm not sure she can pull it off sometimes (acting wise); and 2. Colin, the Australian press secretary at Downing Street, has a terrible Australian accent. It's more like a New Zealand one.
Eg, the little shut (instead of the little sh*t).
But still really looking forward to series three this year!
