An audio representation of a well-known TV show from years gone by can be a difficult thing to achieve successfully however on this occasion it has been achieved quite comfortably. Anyone with a love of what would now be considered classic BBC comedy programs from a time when comedy was real and cleverly done will love this audiobook based full of witticism and entertaining wordplays.
Perhaps the finest political comedy ever broadcast, the most tangled of plots and lines are unwound with seeming effortless grace by the writers and actors.
Top notch stuff that was admired by Margaret Thatcher, the real occupant of number 10 when it was run, a must listen for anyone interested in literate comedy.

I am assuming no one has written a review before because it really isn't necessary. Anyone thinking of buying this audio cd knows exactly what they are getting! Anyway, for the record :-As a fan of the original BBC TV series, I loved hearing it again,(and again and again)and although I bought it to keep me amused whilst doing various 'chores', in the end I had to stop the chores and just sit and listen, because it is just so damn funny. The images of Bernard, the Prime Minister and Sir Humphrey so clear as I listen to their banter. Both British and Classic, Humour it certainly is, and comes across almost as good on audio as watching the original version on TV. Marvellous stuff, but you knew that already !
