Well, I'm glad that I'm not the only one that remembers this series.. I always liked it too, particularly the satirical slants on the north/south divide, Police PLC, (just as it seemed like the whole country was being sold on the stock market) and the "thatchers". The series saw the "pairing" of Ade Edmondson and John Gordon Sinclair as young men from the opposite sides of the political and financial as well as the geographical divide. (John Gordon Sinclair also starred in another "lost" series, "Hot Metal") It seemed to finish cued up for a second series that just never happened. Of course Marks and Gran also went on to pen that other political satire (starring the other half of the "dangerous brothers", Rik Mayall) "The New Statesman"
