Politicians never change - but do their wives?By RW from Hants , 20 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Trevor Eve is the super sleazy politician - all the rest of his entourage seem unsurprised at his waywardness ! - leaving only Juliet Stevenson to make something out of the mess. A good watch - especially at election time - well acted with a sharp script - and seemingly few obvious flaws.

THEY ARE ALL THE SAMEBy Burnhamite (407 reviews) from BURNHAM , 05 May 2013If seeking the answer to why the public are turned off politics and politicians this DVD provides the solution !
A topical dramaBy veteranfilmbuff (8 reviews) , 06 Feb 2012A really entertaining mini series, which was surprisingly ( and sadly) not dated. The performances were all reliably solid, and Trevor Eve obviously enjoyed his role as a sleazy hypocrite. It's the sort of drama that is best enjoyed curled up on the sofa on a rainy afternoon.
The Politicians WifeBy cdot (43 reviews) , 31 Oct 2011I enjoyed this very much. Good story and just shows what happens when you play away from home. Very entertaining.
AN EXCELLENT DRAMABy RJN (125 reviews) from KIDDERMINSTER , 14 Sep 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]WHAT A PLEASANT CHANGE TO WATCH AN EXCELLENT DRAMA, ALBEIT AN ORIGINAL TV MINI SERIES WHICH WAS JUST TOTALLY ENTHRALLING. NEWER VERSIONS SHOW MINNIE DRIVER AS THE MAIN ACTRESS, WHICH IS FINE SHE IS, BUT HER ROLE IS SMALL AND THE MAIN ROLES AND CREDITS MUST GO TO JULIE STEVENSON,TREVOR EVE AND IAN BANNEN WHO WERE ALL JUST SUPERB. CLEVER AND WELL THOUGHT OUT. ANOTHER TO ADD TO MY COLLECTION
good politicsBy valeriemax (1 review) , 27 Aug 2011i really enjoyed this film,plenty of twists and turns.THE ACTING WAS FIRST RATE.Trever eve was at his best ( i hated his sleasy manner).Juliet stevenson was brilliant and just right for the part of a used suffering wife.The story line was good and i felt impelled to watch it to the end, all in all a very good film.
