Reviews

Britse televisieminiserie van de BBC uit 1990 van Paul Seed, met Ian Richardson en Susannah Harker. Gebaseerd op de roman van Michael Dobbs. Francis Urquart is leider van de Conservatieven in het Britse Lagerhuis. De ambitieuze Urquart wil echter meer. Met geduld, list en bedrog weet hij zijn macht verder uit te breiden, maar dan begint de jonge journaliste Mattie Storin lastige vragen te stellen. Gebruikers op de IMDb gaven 9.1 (van 10) punten. Ian Richardson won in 1991 een Bafta Award voor Best actor, daarnaast een zestal Bafta nominaties en winnaar van een Emmy Award voor scriptschrijver Andrew Davies. Geen extra's.
