| If you can ignore Political bias, it's very good.
How wonderfully old fashioned this drama is, we haven't had a good Political drama for years, in 2020 we needed one.

It focuses on Peter Laurence, a Government Minister with Political ambition, and a checkered past. Everything in his private life seems to start spiralling out of control, at a time where opportunities for career development seem to be there.

It's good, it starts off fairly slow, but it gathers momentum as it progresses, you have expectations ahead of the finale, make your own minds up whether it succeeds or not.

Superbly acted throughout, Hugh Laurie is incredible, his ability to switch from conniving liar to Politician and man of the people is incredible. Other performances of note are Pippa Bennett-Warner, Pip Torrens and of course Helen McCrory.

I'm sure many will look at Helen McCrory's character Dawn, and be reminded of a former PM, possibly even two.

Beautifully produced, it's slick, sharp, with good music throughout.

The Politics, I say this as someone say in the centre, I'm not a Tory voter, and never have been, but.... There is a lot of political bias here, it's very anti Tory, we have Ministers wanting to sell of the NHS for one, Ministers in possession of I'll gotten gains, and we have the old boys network plotting against the female PM, it's not for me to comment, but come on, you need to be a little more impartial.

I would argue it's well worth seeing, but I know full well it will irritate some of a certain political persuasion 8/10.
