Intriguing view of what it takes to be a successful politician. Hugh Laurie's character is a jaded but still ambitious MP whose past threatens his chances with his delightfully prim and deliciously mean Prime Minister, played by the fascinating Helen McGrory . It's those on the sidelines who will probably reveal the truth and their own share of the squalid least that's what we can expect from the first episode. Highly recommended slow burn.
