Yes, Prime Minister
Friday 8th February 2013
Yes, Prime Minister returns to office in January after a 24 year hiatus. With a brand new cast and scripted by the original writing team Anthony Jay and Jonathan Lynn, this lauded six part satire will be available on DVD from 25th February 2013, courtesy of BBC Worldwide.
The new series will see Olivier Award winning David Haig (My Boy Jack/Thin Blue Line/Four Weddings and a Funeral) star as the ultimately powerful but beleaguered Prime Minister Jim Hacker, back in office as PM and leading a coalition government confronting the greatest economic crisis in a generation.
Henry Goodman stars alongside David as Jim Hacker's impenetrably loquacious advisor Sir Humphrey Appleby, Chris Larkin (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World/Valkyrie) makes up the infamous trio as Principal Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, with Zoe Telford appearing as the PM's personal advisor Claire Sutton and Robbie Coltrane (Harry guest starring as Deputy PM Rory McAlister.
Yes, Prime Minister returns in a contemporary setting and unsurprisingly there is trouble afoot for the fraught PM. European economies are going down the toilet, there's a 'too good to be true' energy deal on the table from an unusual source, a leadership crisis with his coalition partners, the threat of a Scottish independence referendum and the greatest moral dilemma he has ever faced.
