Back on FormBy CyberDan from London UK , 25 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I felt that this series was a welcome return to the quality of the first series of Yes Minister, which had run out of steam by the third, final series.
Jim Hacker's new position sees him dealing with a much wider range of issues giving much greater scope for the scriptwriters.

Yes Prime ViewingBy tisheau (91 reviews) from Craigavon , 10 Jun 2013The most disturbing thing about this series is that all these topics are still relevent twenty years later. And so it is still hilarious. The ministerial manoeuvring and civil service vacillation is music to the viewers ears. Such comedy scripts are gems which should be treasured and revered by future generations of writers. The acting is beyond measure BUT I suppose the real credit should go to the rich vein of material bound up in our political system.
Only Sir Humphrey could find the words.........By Masonic (8 reviews) from London , 16 Sep 2011When you put Jim Hacker and Sir Humphrey in the same room you know that there will be only one outcome - total disagreement!
The Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister series are not only brilliantly written, but superbly acted. Strangely, the issues battled over more than 30 years ago are still very relevant today.
You can never quite decide whether Bernard (played superbly by Derek Fowlds) is sympathetic to Jim or just a sneaky b***ard.
Who could play them now, I wonder...........
yes prime ministerBy RG51 (9 reviews) from devon , 23 Dec 2010rented as a follow up to 'yes minister' it really was a blast from the past, funny, clever and very enjoyable viewing.
Yes Prime MinisterBy a customer from Hitchin , 18 Aug 2009If you liked Yes Minister - you'll enjoy this too, you need to watch all the series really as this is the follow on to the minister becoming the Prime minister - not only is it a great laugh it's relevant today - I'm sure this is true even nowadays - there is so much spin on everything.
TV ClassicBy a customer from Fareham , 27 Feb 2009Fantastic and still funny today !
