Yes Prime Minister
Tuesday, 21.00, Gold
A new series! We hear much about how The Thick Of It is a Yes Minister for the 21st Century but Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn reckon the Yes Minister for the 21st Century could actually be Yes Minister again. So here’s the first of six new episodes which perhaps unsurprisingly aren’t, apparently, as exciting or outrageous as the originals, but if it’s witty and engaging we’re sure it’ll be a welcome enough addition to the schedules, helped by the presence of the excellent David Haig. And if it turns out it’s rubbish, it’s followed by a new documentary with some old clips to soften the blow plus chat from famous fans.
