Rather average. It's not awful but it's not great either.

The character of Andrew Dugdale is unbelievable. How could someone be so dim and have been PM? You could argue that James Hacker in Yes Minister / Yes Prime Minister as dim but there was a good deal more realism there.

Ming-Shu Hii - Rita's French accent is awful and Nicki Wendt - Catherine (Dugdale's wife) compete to be worse actors even than Shaun Micallef.

While Shaun Micallef is a good satirist he's not a great actor. We see far too much of him and not enough of Andrew Dugdale.

The script is pedestrian and the comedy tiring, if not embarrassing at times.

Best relegated to day time TV.
