Product description

Product Description

When was the last time that we as a nation organised something that wasn’t a complete disaster? Answer: The Twenty Twelve London Olympic Games. Conclusion: Let’s get that guy in to work for us. Hence the arrival of Ian Fletcher and the start of W1A. The post is sold to Ian as a chance to influence and shape one of the great British institutions. His job is to think Big Thoughts, but it doesn’t take him long to realise that not only does he not have time to think Big Thoughts, he never has time to think any thoughts at all.

Extra: The Real W1A

A lot of people say the author had said all he had to say in 2012; most people seem to think 2012 is better. I much preferred this one, though, partly because the subject is relevant to all of us, partly because the characters were better. One of the apparatchiks is one of the most magnificently slimy creations on TV.

Brilliant series! We love every one in this. This is quirky and very funny - loved seeing the BBC take the mickey out of itself. If you like this you should watch 2012 - the UK's run up to the 2012 Olympics with a clock counting up the hours instead of counting down the hours to the games.

This spin-off from 2012 is very funny. The new setting and characters offer enough novelty to refresh the established formula while the familiar faces of Ian and Siobhan (plus the rest of the Perfect Curve gang) are more than welcome. That said, I thought it had run out of steam by the end of series two. It's hard to see how a third series can work, though who knows?

Clever script writing.
Anyone who has worked in a large office can identify characters from meetings they have attended.
The down side is one episode is much like another, quite repetative.

Brilliant - OK it may not be exactly how the BBC works but it is probably very close.
'I am not trying to be funny or anything' but you need to watch it with full attention to get the best from this series - not just a casual background viewing. As an added bonus as you watch the series try and identify people in your own organisation that fit in with the characters - as a former school teacher it was easy to see former 'colleagues' for every character in the series.

Hilarious! Too close to the truth? Who knows but that's all good then. Hugh Bonneville & Jason Watkins are class acts. Can watch over & over again. Is this really how the BBC is run?!
