I really enjoyed watching “The Amazing Mrs Pritchard” tonight on BBC1. Some slightly uncomfortable moments, particularly early on when the floppy haired Lib Dem is rather cruelly dismissed, but overall an excellent and acute drama. I don’t want to make great claims for what is essentially an entertaining fantasy, but there are a lot of serious points being made that those involved in politics would do well to listen to.
And I must say, superb casting!
I then turned over and came across “The Outsiders” on ITV. What is that all about? Not seen it before (was this the first episode?) but it is obviously an attempt at an updated Avengers style caper series. An attempt that seems to be failing. But what is Brian Cox doing in it?
Then bits of a slightly surreal Newsnight. A useless government spokesman floundering in the face of global climate change and an over supply of Rees-Moggs. Maybe “Mrs Pritchard” is not such a fantasy after all?
