Yes Prime Minister
was the equally funny and successful follow-up to Jonathan Lynn and Antony Jay's hit series Yes Minister
. At the end of that series the well-meaning but incompetent Jim Hacker (Paul Eddington), steered by the invisible cunning of Sir Humphrey (Nigel Hawthorne) finally made it to Number Ten, on the back of (so to speak) the Eurosausage. The show's portrayal of political life was famously enjoyed by the then actual occupant of Number Ten, Margaret Thatcher. These four classic episodes: "A Real Partnership", "A Victory for Democracy", "The Patron of the Arts", "The National Education Service", offer all the wonderfully dry wit of the first series.
