Yes, Prime Minister returns

We know this is a blatant plug for the brand new series of ‘Yes, Prime Minister’ which will be showing on Gold at 9pm this evening – but we will all be watching it, won’t we?

  • We don’t all have Sky/Virgin Media…

  • I’ve seen some trailers and all I can say is Gold is probably is the best channel they could get to screen it.

    I think it is on freeview but only if you pay for top-up TV

    I went to see an episode being recorded at the BBC. It was good fun and the regular cast are extremely professional. Henry Goodman was tremendous at the incomprehensible Sir Humphrey madarin-speak bit and David Haig was spot-on as Jim Hacker. I’ll reserve judgement for a few weeks but it certainly seemed to be channeling the spirit of the original.

    Sadly I can’t watch it if it’s not on Freeview, but it would be interesting to see if it has dated at all in terms of our perception of the relationship between ministers and their departments now that we know about special advisers and spin doctors, and have seen “The Thick of It”.
    Come to think of it, a sitcom that brought together Malcolm Tucker and Sir Humphrey Appleby could be fascinating.

  • I’m not impressed from the trailers. I think it will show how stunning Eddington, Hawthorne & Foulds were.

  • Given the Play was the most disapointing piece of theatre I have seen in the last few years I certainly wont be tuning in.

    When ever I see an episode of the origninal series it still seems to be remarkably relevant in its observations of government and the performances from Paul Eddington and Nigel Hawthorne are so fantastic as good as David Hague is it seems wrong to have bothered to remake it.

  • If it’s on Gold to begin within, where on earth will the repeats be screened? 🙂

    What a pity that the UK public are to be treated to this garbage. Many people will unfortunately believe it’s how things actually are. Real politics has many hilarious moments, but the trailer looks like the writers haven’t got a clue about what they might be.

  • I started watching it last night and had to turn it off. It was dreadful.
