One of the Best British comedies ever,
This review is from: Yes Prime Minister: The Complete Collection (3pc) [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Yes Prime Minister picks up where Yes Minister left off. The only change is that Jim Hacker is now the PM and Sir Humphery is now the Cabinet Secretery, the most senior position in the civil service. Despite Jim's rise to the top job in British politics Humphery is still able to prevent him changing anything. As Jim's political advisor puts it "It's a battle between the political will and the adminastrative won't"
The best two are probably 'The grand Design' Where the new PM is trying to sort out Britan's defence policy, will he really upset the Americans by cancelling the order for 'TRIDENT'? Not if Sir Humphrey can stop him.
and 'A Diplomatic Incident' The UK and the French can't agree on something, as usual, this time it's over the Soverignty of the Channel Tunnel. The French, however, try to cause a major incident which vertualy paralyses the civil service for a week, to get their way. Can Sir Humphery sort it out before news reaches The Queen or will he be looking at serving the rest of his time in the civil service working at the DVLA in Swansea? (a fate worse than death for a civil servent)
