Storyline

Like most twenty-somethings, Scott, Danny, Ashika and Kirsty spend much of their day worrying about love, sex, friendship and paying the rent. Unlike most twenty-somethings, the rest of the time they're worrying about running the country. Party Animals takes a look at Westminster from the ground up - the young researchers and advisers shouldering huge responsibility in a frantic, high-stakes world. It's no wonder their personal lives are so messy. Starring Doctor Who actor Matt Smith.

Contemporary British drama at its best
28 November 2010 | by joanna-knoxSee all my reviews

I LOVE this series. Intelligent script and storyline, great acting, attractive characters - this is contemporary British drama (aiming at the younger crowd but appealing to a wider audience) at its best. Loved 'This Life' (years ago by the same people) but this tops it. A great (but fictional) insight into life at Westminster.

It's a shame series 2 was never made (as it was clearly setup to be), but the poor ratings in addition to Matt Smith becoming the newest Dr Who couldn't have helped.

If you like quality English productions - this is for you. Buy the DVD - worth watching twice.

I think I might go and re-watch 'This Life' now.
