Rediscovered this gem just the other day on Vision TV in Canada.
As a bit of a political junkie AND a member of Her Majesty's empire, I appreciate the humour (yes, that's how you spell it!) in this series.
I actually discovered the books of this series first and then the show. Great wit. Sly and dry 'British' humour and much to laugh at if you are a paper pusher in a government.
