This 16-episode "Britcom" was a sequel to the popular BBC comedy series Yes, Minister. Paul Eddington reprised his role as dimwitted Member of Parliament Jim Hacker, who on this occasion had rather incredibly been elected Prime Minister of Great Britain. Alas, Hacker was still plagued with subordinates who flaunted their intellectual superiority over him, notably scheming undersecretary Sir Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne). Also returning from the earlier series were Derek Fowlds as Bernard Wolley, Diana Hoddinott as Anne Hacker, and John Nettleton as Sir Arnold Robinson. Lasting two seasons, Yes, Prime Minister was telecast from January 9 through February 27, 1986, then again from December 3, 1987 to January 28, 1988.
