This classic comedy gives an insight into just how difficult life at Westminster was for women MP's. The laughs are in the scripts with some great one-liners and very clever dialogues which leave you with a few interesting and uncomfortable thoughts of your own.
I wouldn't compare this with "Yes Minister" or its sequel at all. Entirely different! This is a comedy about a woman Labour MP starting out in politics in the very male dominated Halls of Westminster. There are no privileges, no excuses and not much in the way of staff and facilities. A woman MP needs her wits about her, eyes in the back of her head and a razor sharp mind to succeed. It all adds up to successful classic comedy!
I've also reviewed series 2 here on Amazon and I'm very much looking forward to the third and final series.
Don't miss this, it's a real gem from the archives.
