Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The numerical title of this British miniseries referred to the traditional Downing Street address of the country's many Prime Ministers. For purposes of drama and economy, the series focused on only seven past PMs: William Pitt the Younger, the Duke of Wellington, Disraeli, Gladstone, Lloyd George, Asquith, and MacDonald. One suspects that Churchill was left out of the mix because his life story had been told so often in previous productions. The seven hour-long episodes of Number 10 originally aired over Britain's ITV in 1982.
