Best Yes Prime Minister Episodes

Yes, Prime Minister is the sequel to the award winning British political satire sitcom Yes, Minister. The series was written by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn and ran from 1986 to 1988. Yes, Prime Minister continues essentially with the same cast as Yes, Minister and follows the events of the premiership of Jim Hacker, played by Paul Eddington, after his unexpected elevation to Number 10 upon the resignation of the previous Prime Minister. As in Yes, Minister, the series portrays the struggles of Jim Hacker in formulating and enacting legislation or effecting policy changes while facing opposition by the British Civil Service, in particular his Cabinet Secretary, Sir Humphrey Appleby, played by Sir Nigel Hawthorne. His Principal Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, played by Derek Fowlds, is as usual caught between the two. Yes, Prime Minister and its prequel Yes, Minister are regarded as two of the best British sitcoms ever produced. Here, I have compiled a list of all the episodes from the sequel. Please rank these episodes from best to very good (because, of course, there are no bad episodes in this fantastic series)! Source(s): IMDB

The new Prime Minister is preoccupied with defense issues as he begins to learn some of the details, such as the Russians having six times as many nuclear weapons as the UK or that the armed forces could withstand a conventional attack for 72 hours at best. As only Jim Hacker can do, his "Grand Design" is less than practical and it is left to Sir Humphrey, now Cabinet Secretary, to inject a dose of realism. The PM also wants a cook for 10 Downing St., but wants the government rather than himself to pay.
