“Yes, Prime Minister” TV comedy series….coming back?

Yes, Prime MinisterMany of us enjoyed this satirical British TV comedy series shown mostly in the eighties. We have been missing it for a long time…and perhaps for far too long.

I was pleasantly surprised to find it playing live in the theatre (Trafalgar Studios) in London this month – futher conversations revealed that the much loved TV series will be making a debut again following its success in the theatre over the last few months.

We managed to get tickets for the play and enjoyed a night of laughter. Sir Humphrey was as brilliant as ever with his convoluted sentences and profound experience of the inner workings of government, much to the bewilderment of the baffled Prime Minister, often caught in a ridiculously impossible situation.

We often hear of books being turned into movies. In the case of “Yes, Prime Minister”, I don’t think I have heard of any book about it. I think it would be a nice idea to capture it all in a few books – I would certainly enjoy reading this. I saw the TV series when I was still in school, so think I would appreciate the humour even more now – having lived in the big, bad world for a while! I am certainly looking forward to watching the TV series again.
