Here’s a nice little treat – a curtain raiser for Gold’s updated Yes, Prime Minister, which starts later this month with David Haig as hapless PM Jim Hacker and Henry Goodman as his handler, Sir Humphrey Appleby.
Haig and Goodman have big shoes to fill, something that’s obvious from the start in this first episode of the original
Paul Eddington and Nigel Hawthorne, in one of the great sitcom partnerships of all time, are wonderful as the politely warring duo of Hacker and Sir Humphrey. It’s easy to see why the series routinely tops “best” comedy polls. It was sublimely clever and beautifully funny.
Jim Hacker settles into his new job as Minister for Administrative Affairs, ably assisted - and hindered - by civil servants Bernard Woolley and Sir Humphrey Appleby. First-ever episode of the comedy, starring Paul Eddington, Nigel Hawthorne and Derek Fowlds.
